Meet the Author

Robin Lythgoe is an author of fantasy fiction. Reading and writing have always been a part of her life; before she mastered the art of the pen, she dictated her first written fiction to her scribe (a.k.a. her oldest sister). Her mother regularly took her on expeditions to the library, from which she invariably returned laden with a stack of books guaranteed to make her arms longer. She read everything voraciously, and when she finished her stack, she'd start on her mother's… and then her sisters'. Today she writes tales about wizards and magic, fantastical places and extraordinary journeys.

    Highly Recommended. Wonderful, imaginative, captivating short story

    I loved this story. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. Although when I finished I was wishing there was more.

    Liked it

    I really liked this 22 page short story. It was a bit predictable, but I enjoyed the illusion the writer created with her words. I'd like to see her do a longer work.

    Cute but too short

    The story was predictable. I would like to see more developed stories from the writer.

    Hmmm.

    It was not very interesting to say the least. this guys father is a writer who has a mirror in his office and he just up and disappears one day the sons life goes on and he becomes a writer also but not very successful and he has his fathers mirror in his study where he writes, and his father appears in the mirror and he talks him into joining him there. the end.
