Where am I? Here are a couple places that mention me 🙂

Hello all! 

I have been fortunate to have been interviewed in a few places or had my books mentioned! I also like to participate in events and conferences which will be added to the list as my career goes.

Media Bio

While she's spent the majority of her life in beach towns, having almost drowned several times, she currently resides in a desert where the waters are less likely to kill her.

Robin's work has been featured on OwlCrate, ABC, NBC, and CBS news affiliates.
