a little bit about robin
I once said I should write down all the story ideas in my head so someone could write them someday. I had no idea at the time that someone was me!
I have been writing since 1995, and began working in earnest on my debut novel, Tessa in 2013. Meanwhile, I cranked out a few dozen poems, made countless notes for story ideas, and earned my BFA in Interior Design. I lived with depression for many years, and the inherent feelings of worthlessness and invisibility; I didn’t want to be who I was and struggled with my own identity for many years. My characters face many of these same demons.
I have three novels published, the unsavory heritage series. Tessa, Clara Bess and Cissy are available on Amazon, both for Kindle and in print. I also have several poems included in an anthology, Where Dreams and Visions Live (Anthologies of the Heart Book 1) by Mary Blowers as well as a short story, Sarafina’s Light, also in an anthology, Blood Moon, compiled by Mary Blowers. I will also be working on a personal compilation of poetry to be released in 2017.
I am all about family, and my website is designed like a home. In fact, the drawings are my design for my dream home. I love family gatherings, the bigger and louder and zanier the better. My house is designed for company and for fun. I love windows and window seats. I love the outdoors so there’s a Florida room and a big back deck. I love to cook and the kitchen is spacious. I love to entertain, too, and I have lot’s of room for company. There’s even a movie room in the basement for movie night.
My family? I have three wonderful, knucklehead kids, all grown. And I have two beautiful, sweet grand girls, growing up too fast. We don’t get to spend nearly enough time together but believe me, when we do? It’s crazy and zany and fun – and usually involves food! And I would be remiss if I left out my four sweet kitty babies.
Come on in, take off your shoes, and let’s have a nice hot cuppa. Come sit by the fireplace or on the back deck, and let’s visit a while.
I write stories of identity conflict. My characters encounter situations that force
the question, “Who am I, really?”
For all who have ever wondered who you are or why you’re here,
my stories will touch you in a very real—maybe too real—and a very deep way.
I know, I write from experience.
