Madeleine E. Robins
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 most of her short fiction is available for free!
A lifelong and passionate fan of cities and all things urban, Madeleine Robins now lives in
San Francisco with her family, dog, and one hegemonic lemon tree.
