About Me

orn and raised in Sacramento, California, Robin Renee Robinson moved to LA in the early '80s to pursue a career in front of the camera. Although she had stars in her eyes, Robin was not one to waitress or starve for that matter, so her nine-to-five's included stints at ABC-TV, Lorimar Productions, Motown Productions, Eddie Murphy Productions, Wing Records, Ivory Way Productions (Keenen Wayans' production company) Sony Pictures Entertainment, and 20th Century Fox Television. Her duties were varied and included working in casting, creative affairs, marketing, pre and post production, and business affairs. While working full-time, Robin pursued an acting career and has appeared in independent films, as well as in USC and UCLA student films.

After obtaining an AA in Communications from Los Angeles City College, Robin went on to USC where she majored in Broadcast Journalism. Years later, Robin reunited with USC when she was tapped to be one of fifteen (out of a field of 300 plus) who made it into the prestigious Guy Hanks/Marvin Miller Screenwriting Program after submitting a "Wayans Brothers" (television series) spec script. Robin eventually earned her BA in Management from Saint Mary's College of California in Moraga in 2005.

Robin's first novel, "Chocolate Lemons and Peppermint Tears: The Bittersweet Life of Xena" was published by Xpressyourselfpublishing in May 2009. Initially, the first chapter "In the Beginning" was an entry in Essence Magazine's short story contest in 1990. She didn't win; however, that chapter evolved into the tome it is today. She has also penned teleplays, a screenplay, a stage play, an awards show, and poetry.

Robin also does voiceover work, has done stand-up, is signed with Cast Images, and she enjoys journalling. An avid reader, Robin loves to dance, collects refrigerator magnets and will soon begin work on her next novel. She currently lives in northern California. Most importantly, Robin is Will Jr.'s mom and Emoni's grand ma-ma.
