Hello, I’m Robert Rankine. At the time of writing I am thirty-seven years old and live and work in London, England. I am a self-published indie author and although I consider myself very much a novice, I am excited to be at the start my life long journey in writing.

Harpy Blinks by R.G. Rankine
"This is a great story of life. We start with stars in our eyes and slowly realise that life has other ideas and the story shows that in a gritty and harsh way. It starts with the protagonist, young, intelligent, ambitious, with so much hope, his “..." Read more of this review »
Harpy Blinks by R.G. Rankine
"So often contemporary literature presents us with characters that are unlikable curmudgeons on the outside but show themselves to have a thoroughly heart-warming (if flawed) goodness on the inside. Harpy is not one of these protagonists and Rankin..." Read more of this review »

Thank you very much! Really appreciate you letting me know :) Also, I am a novice with a thick skin so don't hold back at all, I have a lot to learn and want to develop over the next few years and know I have a long way to go so it's best to hear the truth! I am aiming to get at least three new ebooks out this year, I've spent the last six months plus developing the website, etc. so it's time to get back to writing!


Sharon Just bought all 3 of your stories. I read the first couple of paragraphs of each. They look really good! Still working on reading a few books right now, but I'll let you know when I read them.
