Robin penned and illustrated her first manuscript ‘Chickens and their Diseases’, in second grade. Back then her main readings were non-fiction and much restricted because she lived in Nigeria with no library around the corner. She’s been in a variety of places, though the most influential were Nigeria, New Hampshire and California. Her other career is oil landscape painting. She’s married to a paleobotanist, who corrects the science in both her paintings and her writings.

Her novel Night Must Wait, was published in October of 2012 by Imajin Books. The novel   pits four powerful women friends in deadly conflict against each other against the backdrop of the Nigerian Civil War in the late 1960’s. Her second novel, Future Past is in Louise Marley’s words, a “a big, dystopian, far future story dense with scientific detail, and both tragic and triumphant”. This science fiction novel was published by Eternal Press, May 2013.
