About the author Robin Gregory:
ROBIN GREGORY is a devoted wife and mother, who is a student of mystical teachings based on self-realization and healing. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she grew up in California, accompanied by seven siblings, and surrounded by horses, real cowboys, and the occasional rattlesnake. She has always been drawn to helping others, a trait that began, to her mother’s horror, with bringing home swallow chicks stricken from their nests. She has worked as a journalist, lay minister, and infant massage instructor for mothers and babies at risk. Her studies include Literature and Creative Writing at University of California, Santa Cruz and Stanford University’s Writer’s Workshop, and French at Monterey Institute of International Studies (Middlebury) and La Sorbonne. She lives with her husband and son in a Carmel cottage old enough to make you sneeze.
