Robyn Harding's picture

Robyn Harding


Robyn Harding grew up in Quesnel, a logging town in northern British Columbia. To relieve her small town angst she turned to creative writing, hoping to become another S E Hinton and publish a novel at seventeen.After high school, creative writing was relegated to a hobby and Robyn moved to Vancouver. She studied English Literature, journalism, and then marketing, eventually landing a job at an advertising agency. This exciting, dynamic industry was a delightful challenge until the deadlines, egos and politics turned it into a stressful nightmare. By this time, she was also the mother of a young son and daughter. Tired of juggling motherhood and a full-time career, Robyn left her agency job to stay home with her children and work as a freelance copywriter.
