J.M. Robison is a fantasy author who chronicles the events which drive heroes to their knees, turn princesses into war queens, and unhinge history to bring magic back to life.

She is an introvert who grew up playing games with herself and turned those games into novels as soon as she learned the alphabet. Married to  an incredible man, they hope for children soon but for now t

These characters hate each other when the book starts, total opposites, but they fall in love and figure out their differences were each other's strengths. I'm especially attracted to characters who hate each other first, and then fall in love later.(less)

The Makings of The Last Wizard Series

Always the question: where did you get the idea to write The Last Wizard?Always the answer: Like a Facebook relationship...it's complicated.I had just finished writing The War Queen (now published by Tirgearr Publishing)and I was chomping at the bit to write another story. Any story. Living in Elko, NV at the time, me and my husband spent an evening in Salt Lake City, UT. 11 p.m. came around and w Read more of this blog post »

I did not finish this book. I don't have the energy or desire to finish it or read on to the 3rd. I feel the author was trying to follow after Game of Thrones in that tragedy after tragedy and villain after villain continued to corrupt and characters ...more

The book started out with a strong feel of middle-grade writing, but I suppose it's because the main character was 13 because the writing adapted to a more adult feel as the character matured. Anyway, a good enough read to bring me to start reading b ...more

“They don't want a princess. They want a war queen.”
JM Robison, The War Queen

“I am not a writer. I am a historian for another world.”
JM Robison, The War Queen

“Vice is a monster of so frightful mien
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then pity, then embrace.”
Alexander Pope

“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

~Mother Teresa”
