Madeleine Robins

About Madeleine

Writing gives Madeleine Robins the chance to focus on many of her ruling passions: cities, history, swordplay, the history of disease, and the future of mankind–with a side order of historical costuming and infrastructure (urban plumbing is far more interesting than you’d think).

Born in New York City, the Author has been, in no particular order, a nanny, a teacher, an actor and stage-combatant, an administrator, a comic book editor, a baker, typist-clerk for Thos. Cook’s Houses of Parliament office, a repairer-of-hurt-books, an editorial consultant, and a writer.  She holds a degree in Theatre Studies from Connecticut College, and attended the Clarion Science Fiction Workshop in 1981.  She is a founding member of the BookViewCafe, where her first five books — all Regency romances — are available for sale.

A lifelong and passionate fan of cities and all things urban, Madeleine  lives in San Francisco with her family, dog, and one hegemonic lemon tree.
