Robin Timmerman says she never wanted to be anything but a writer. However, like most authors, she has had many types of ‘day’ jobs, including secretary, part-time journalist, mother and grandma, and for most of her working life as a painter/decorator with her husband in beautiful Prince Edward County. Robin is a long-time environmental activist (starting with a Ban the Bomb March at fourteen!) and conservationist (served three years on the conservation authority of Prince Edward County). She launched the Bee Friendly campaign in PEC, and gets a special kick out of combining her concerns for the natural world with her stories.
