Robin Murphy was born in the small coal mining town of Windber, Pennsylvania and remembers a wonderful childhood with her parents and two older brothers.
She is a paranormal mystery and travel writer; a speaker on author platforms, self-publishing, and marketing, and recently became the sole-proprietor of Rookie Writers Solutions. She has also worked in the administrative, graphic design, desktop publishing, writing, and self-publishing arena for more than thirty years. Her wide range of skills and abilities place her at the top of her field. She is currently employed as an Administrative Associate at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
Robin has four children – two daughters, Jennifer and Sue, and two sons, Michael and Nathan – five granddaughters – Tessa, Anna, Abigail, Elly, and Mady – and grandson, Brendan Michael.
She and her husband, Bob were married in Sharpsburg, MD in 1998 by local historian, Rev. John Schildt. After falling in love with the town, they decided to move to Sharpsburg three years later.
Even though Robin has to squeeze her writing into creative times of the day, it is during those moments she feels exhilarated and renewed. “There is no greater feeling than to have found my passion in writing.” She also finds time to swim and loves to travel.
