The intuitive comes easy to me in music, poetry, reflective writing and music composition. In mid-life I’m learning to see with a different eye, my real ones!

My passion is creativity!

My debut novel is available for purchase. Finding Home is the story of a rural community in NC. Each of the characters is trying to discover what ‘home’ means. A wonderful mix of the styles of Fried Green Tomatoes and At Home in Mitord, I hope this will delight you.

My works in progress are musical and artistic expression with paint. Reworking a book of short stories while I wait for the paint to dry. Life is amazing.

Originally published by Regal Crest Books, In a Southern Closet is my memoir of coming out as a Christian. It is currently republished as a 2nd edition. Contact Robin for more info.

More Than Knowing is my first collection of poetry and is published by Regal Crest Books

You can order my books from City Lights Bookstore and I will autograph if you wish. Please support your local Independent Bookseller!

Traditional Art/Craft: Storytelling

In my art, music and stories I seek to convey the beauty I see, hear and feel in the life around us. We are surrounded by the spirit of nature, the soul of sound and the dance of vision. The goal of art is to move us; move us to look inward or reach outward or stop and be still. All we have is the here and now; this life before us, over our heads, under our feet, residing in our center is good. My art is an attempt to share this with others while at the same time loving life again and again.

Thoughts on being are prevalent in all religious traditions. NPR even has a great radio show called On Being with Krista Tippett. She interviews great speakers from around the world to talk about being. / In my experience, being can…

Anyone out there create collages? I want to finish the one I’ve started but am at an impasse. I know I will do some writing on it eventually, but it’s still missing something. I would love to hear of tips etc. for the best effect or process from your experience. / Thanks, Robin

My Response to the Orlando Massacre

Linked Text / My Bar Experience / “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.” / ~Joseph Heller, Catch-22 / First, you must understand how challenging it is for me to post this publically as a religious person. Second, you must know that I am a lesbian. Those things being said, you might want to stop reading if you think this is going to be some kind of erotic or some gay co…
