Growing up, while her friends went to the beach and learned vital social skills, Robyn had her nose in a book or her eyes on a PBS special. After all, what kind of wrong-headed dolt would want to waste their time partying, when Marty Stouffer is about to talk about water shrews? When Ai and Estraven are braving the frozen wastes of Gethen? When Alex and his droogs are… You know, that time she probably should have gone to the beach.

Now she spends her days working in biotech and her nights thinking up new curse words to adequately describe how horrible people are. Having met with limited success in either endeavor, she vents her frustrations through crime, yelling at clouds, and writing. Her debut novel, The Guns Above, will be released by T

GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE

Soooooooo, maybe you've noticed this blog hasn't been updated in a while.

That's because no one's reading it. Yup. If you're reading this, you don't exist. I'm sorry I had to be the one to break it to you.

Anyway! Feel free to linger as long as you'd like. I'm not deleting the articles or anything. Just be aware that, when the bar lights come on, you might see some stuff you'll wish you hadn't.

Oh! A Read more of this blog post »

I LOVE this book. I liked Neon Lights, and I loved Brothers Jetstream, but I FREAKING LOVE this one. In a just world, they would assign this book in schools instead of Atlas Shrugged.

Research, research, and more research. I read endless books about airships, talked to veterans, and abducted live human specimens to study in my basement.

“Her eyes snapped open and she was instantly awake, alert, and ready. “Thank you, Ensign,” she said.
Kember saluted unsteadily, her face drained of blood.
“Oh, and Ensign?” Josette said, before the girl left. “That request for you to throw yourself over the side and fall straight to Hell was not a formal order. You may feel free to disregard it.”
Robyn Bennis, The Guns Above

“Respectfully, sir,” the man without eyebrows said as they ran, “you ever try not enraging people so much?”
“Once,” she said, looking over her shoulder. “It didn’t work.”
Robyn Bennis, The Guns Above

“What does one wear to an ambush?” he asked. “Is it a formal affair? I ask only because I can’t seem to decline to invitation.”
