Robin W. Pearson's writing sprouts from her Southern roots.While sitting in her grandmothers' kitchens she learned what happens if yousweep someone's feet, how to make cornbread taste like pound cake, and theall-purpose uses of Vaseline. She also learned about the power of God and howHis grace led her grandmothers to care for their large families after theirhusbands were long gone, rearing children who became business owners,graduates, ministers, parents, and grandparents themselves. Their faith andsuperstitions, life lessons, and life's longings all worked together to shapeand inspire her, leading her to write ALong Time Comin', the first in a three-book series about man's timelesslove affair with God. This story shares an African American family'sexperiences in a relationship that crosses generations, cultures, andgeography.
While her family history gave her the story to tell, herprofessional experiences gave her the skills to tell it effectively. Armed withher degree from Wake Forest University, she has corrected grammar up and downthe East coast in her career as an editor and writer that started with HoughtonMifflin Company twenty-five years ago. Since then she has freelanced withmagazines, parenting journals, textbooks, and homeschooling resources.
At the heart of it all abides her love of God and the familyHe's given her. It's her focus as a wife and homeschooling mother of seven.It's what she writes about on her blog, "Mommy, Concentrated," where she sharesher adventures in faith, family, and freelancing. And it's the source andsubject of her fiction—in her novel ALong Time Comin', in the new characters currently living and breathing onher computer screen, and in the stories waiting to be told about her belief inJesus Christ and the experiences at her own kitchen sink.
