If time and money were no object, Robin Patchen would travel more often than she stayed home. Her goal is to visit every place in the entire worldtwice. Because, as you know, the first time, you don't know exactly what you want to see. So you flit from one tourist attraction to another and enjoy every minute of it. But it's always on the last day that you find the best thing, and you don't have enough time to explore it properly, and you wished you'd discovered it first (but even if you had, you wouldn't know it was the best thing, because you hadn't seen everything else yet). So you have to go back a second time. It's just logical. Alas, time is short and money is scarce, and Robin's family doesn't want to follow her all around the world, so she does the next best thing: she writes. In the worlds Robin creates, she can go back to the best places time and again. And when they're not perfect, that's all rightshe just edits until they are. Robin is the author of two novels and the owner of Robin's Red Pen editing services. She also teaches writing classes to home school students. Robin's passion is to equip Christian writers to share stories that will inspire and encourage the family of God in their walks with Christ. Robin is married to her story's hero, Edward, and together they have three children, Nicholas, Lexi, and Jacob. Her family is a close second on her list of priorities after her relationship with Jesus. So that's her life: God, husband, children, and made-up worlds where she has complete control. Who could ask for more?
