Robin Summers began her writing career in high school, thanks to an insightful (and a little bit pushy) English teacher who, having decided that Robin was not living up to her potential, gave Robin extra, non-graded homework over her winter break: to read Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Helene Hanff’s Q’s Legacy. In those pages Robin discovered how far good writing and a vivid imagination could take a reader, and she has been writing ever since.
Robin is an Illinois native who works in public policy in Washington, DC. When she is not writing, she can often be found rooting for Da Bears and her beloved Cubbies. After the Fall is her first novel.
