Robin began her writing career in high school, thanks to an insightful (and perhaps a tiny bit pushy) English teacher who, having decided that Robin was not living up to her potential, gave her extra, non-graded homework over her winter break: to read Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Helene Hanff’s Q’s LegacyIn those pages Robin discovered how far good writing and a vivid imagination could take a reader, and she has been writing ever since.


Robin's debut novel, After the Fall, is the winner of two 2012 Golden Crown Literary Society Awards, two 2011 Rainbow Awards for LGBT Fiction and Non-fiction, and a 2011 Lesbian Fiction Readers Choice Award.​


Robin is an Illinois native who works in public policy in Washington, DC. She lives in Pittsburgh, PA.
