Hello, I’m Robert Rankine. At the time of writing I 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. I am interested in contemporary fiction and write short stories that have a focus on modern life. I set up Thinking Plainly Limited in January 2012 to self-publish eBooks and I love being part of such a huge and interesting community. I am on all major social media sites and you can learn more about me on my website, please feel free to connect from any of the links, www.rgrankine.com.

Thank you for your time.

R. G Rankine.

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas holiday and managed to find time to see your friends and family, avoided arguments, drank and ate to excess, and were surprised with thoughtful gifts.
I haven’t posted on social media since June 2017 with the haunting words of ‘taking the rest of the year out’ which, although I am by no means a maths genius, seemed to imply I would be posting agai... Read more of this blog post »

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!


w1ndsor 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.
