Robin Hobb



A pseudonym used by Megan Lindholm

Robin Hobb is a confirmed believer not just in research, but in attempting to experience the things she is writing about. When, at the age of ten, she moved with her family from California to Alaska, it shaped her as a writer more than any other experience in her life. In the early stages of her writing career she established herself as an author under the name 'Megan Lindholm', creating such fine works of modern fantasy as Wizard of the Pigeons, Harpy's Flight, The Windsingers, and The Reindeer People. In 1992 she decided to embark upon something of greater epic scope. To mirror that change, she chose a new name, 'Robin Hobb'. She is Voyager's fastest-selling author in backlist and has now sold over 1 million copies of her paperbacks.
