Robin has written three mystery novels in the Clare Vengel series. She is currently taking a long break to enjoy her 4-year-old daughter, and working slowly but steadily on her fourth novel, a mystery set in Miami Beach.

She grew up in Toronto, studied physics at Mount Allison University, and dropped out to travel North America on her motorcycle, working at bars and restaurants along the way. She now lives in a west coast mountain village with her husband and daughter.

She is a member of the Green Party of Canada.
