Robin Rivers

Author, The Sibylline Chronicles

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing. A lifetime ago, I kicked off a journalism career as a copy runner, getting the copy from the newsroom to paste-up in the basement of my local newspaper. Since then, I’ve worked as awriter at daily newspapers, magazines, and online publications across North America.

I’ve received the National (U.S.) Mental Health Association Media Award and The Golden Bell Award for a series in which I spent six months detailing the lives of three people with schizophrenia. I also earned numerous Associated Press and Society of Professional Journalists awards for news writing in the United States.

I current guide young people to find their writing voices and develop their skills as CEO of Quill Academy of Creative Writing. 

Born in the mist of Niagara Falls, N.Y., I grew up in Colorado at the base of the Rocky Mountains.  I crossed the border into Canada many years later after agreeing to marry some Canadian guy on our second date (we’ve been married twenty years now, so . . .) My husband, daughters, and Hypatia, their sphynx cat, tolerate me most of the time

My debut novel, Woman On The Wall, was released on Sept. 6, 2022. Vol. 2, The Mother House, is slated for a Fall 2023 release.

I live and write on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations in Vancouver, Canada.
