Robyn Donald has almost seventy published romance books to her credit and is co-author of Writing the Romantic Novel by Daphne Clair and Robyn Donald. She was one of only two New Zealanders invited to contribute an essay to Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance writers on the appeal of the Romance Novel, edited by Jayne Ann Krentz, and published by the University of Pennysylvia Press, winner of the Susan Koppelman award for its contribution to feminism.
Robyn lives with her husband and their Corgi in the "winterless north" of New Zealand, although it doesn't always live up to its reputation. Their home is surrounded by an orange grove and in spring the blossoms scent the whole house, and Robyn writes to the sound of a waterfall nearby.
She is a voracious reader of all kinds of books and loves her garden.
