About the Author

Robin Cutler has been a public historian for more than three decades. Between 1979 and 1984, she was co-producer of ROANOAK, an Emmy-nominated miniseries for PBS' American Playhouse that recreated the clash of cultures between Native Americans and Elizabethan explorers in what is now North Carolina. New York Times critic John O'Connor found it "admirably ambitious" and "quietly and consistently compelling."

Her first book, A Soul on Trial: A Marine Corps Mystery at the Birth of the Twentieth Century (Rowman & Littlefield) was named a "notable Naval Book of 2007" and featured on the History News Network. (See Press tab for reviews.) Robin's latest book, The Laughing Desert (2012), the story of Arizona humorist Dick Wick Hall's nationally syndicated Salome Sun, includes a replica of the 1925-1926 illustrated paper and a Foreword by Arizona State Historian Marshall Trimble. Part of an Arizona Centennial Legacy Project, it was featured in the Yuma Sun on November 9, 2012.

She's been a Program Officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and a Contributing Editor for the American Historical Association's Perspectives. While president of Media Resource Associates, Inc.(1989-1999), she joined forces with several Native American tribes to document their histories and cultures.

Robin has a PhD in history from Columbia University; she's a mentor at Hunter College, C.U.N.Y. and a scholarship scorer for The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. She divides her time between New York, Florida, and her daughters' homes in California. Her favorite things include animals, trees, lavender, raindrops on roses, water pistols, salted caramel, and classic films. For press reviews and more see
