Robin Jeffrey

Robin can be found cranking out punchy flash fiction, lyrical essays, and world-rich romances. Her writing has been published in "The Mary Sue" and other magazines across the country and the world. Robin has taught classes both online and in-person with groups like Emerald City Romance Writers, SavvyAuthors, and Romance Writers of America. As a former librarian, she loves connecting people with the information they need!

Robin was born in Cheyenne, Wyo., to a psychologist and a librarian, giving her a love of literature and a consuming interest in the inner workings of people's minds, which have served her writing career well. She calls the Pacific Northwest home, where she lives happily with her husband and their out-of-control comic book collection.
