Other Works

Robin has written many hundreds of poems of which a number have appeared in small poetry magazines and a few journals. Unfortunately none are currently in print, and for copyright reasons we are unable to reproduce any here. However, it is hoped that this situation may change in the not too distant future, when a volume of selected poetry is being planned.

It was in the mid-Nineties that Robin went to pick up the pen again, in the first instance to write poetry, but instead embarked on a novel of some quarter of a million words, though it was edited considerably for publication. Not happy with such a long laborious work, once completed Robin started writing again and reconsidered what he wanted to achieve by such a work of art.

The result was 'The Dark Mirror of Desire' which was revised many times in the course of the past ten years.

Robin is, in the first instance a writer of fiction, however, his insight into human nature is somewhat unique and often perceptive. This at times leaves his characters (especially in his latest novel) with an air of both mystery and tragedy and it is in the appreciation of this that somehow we find ourselves witnesses to something which is refreshingly different, even if we do not realise it at the time.
