Robin has written three mystery novels in the Clare Vengel series. She took an extended holiday from writing to be a full-time mom to her 6-year-old daughter, and is now back at work writing a different kind of fiction than she has before. Watch this space.

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.
