About this author

Antarctica has been the backdrop of Robyn's life for 16 years, and is the setting of her novel, The Nature of Ice. Robyn works part of each year on ship-based tours to remote locales that regularly include the Antarctic and Arctic. She has both summered and wintered at Australian Antarctic stations in the role of a field assistant on science wildlife projects. Robyn co-authored the Young Readers adventure book Epic Voyages, and is writing a new novel set on a lonely windswept island.
