Young adult fiction writer, Robin Woods, was born and raised in San Jose, CA where she earned a BA in English and a MA in Education from local universities.

When you don’t have to fear death, what would you fear? Additionally, what would you strive for? Would you shun any sort or humanity, or search for it?

Robin Woods Generally, I reread what I have written and then take a break. A day off can do wonders.

If it persists, I work on a different project or an extra.

Thanks for the recommendation! I was wondering if it was any good.

I added The Scarlet Dagger to my 'to-read' list. It looks fun. :)


Krystle Jones Hi, Robin! Thanks for addding me. Since you like vampires, I recommend seeing the movie 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.' Lots of ridiculous action and very fun. Haven't read the book, but I gave the movie two thumbs up. =)
