Mike Robinson


A writer since age six, Mike Robinson is the award-winning author of ten books, including the dark urban fantasy trilogy The Enigma of Twilight Falls, Dreamshores: Monster Island, Skunk Ape Semester, The Atheist, The Prince of Earth, Dishonor Thy Father (with M.J. Richards) and Too Much Dark Matter, Too Little Gray: A Collection of Weird Fiction. His short fiction has appeared in over twenty outlets, and he has sold work to Amazon Audible. A native of Los Angeles, he is a charter member of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (GLAWS), a freelance book editor as well as an active screenwriter and producer. A short sci-fi thriller he co-wrote, Chrysaline, is on ThinkShorts and making the film festival rounds. He is represented by Jennifer Azantian, of Azantian Literary.

As an editor, he works with various publishers, PR firms, book formatting and production studios as well as individual clients. As can be gleaned from the books sagging his shelves, or from his own work, his tastes run the gamut, genre-wise. However, he is most at home in speculative fiction, the umbrella term for science fiction, fantasy (preferably urban or paranormal) and horror. You won’t find any MFA or academic dogma here: possessing a bit of an experimental streak, Mike knows there are many, many ways a story can work, and so seeks to fully understand and appreciate the author’s intention(s), and to edit within that framework to help fulfill the original vision.
