After growing up in Boston, I moved to Los Angeles after college to work in the film and TV business. After ten years as an agent, producer and network executive, I took the leap and left the corporate world in order to pursue my dream to write. Five years later I got a three-book deal with Penguin for a Young Adult series of modern retellings of fairy tales, and, since then, have published 12 books in the YA/Middle Grade genre. In 2008 I moved to New York City and began consulting for MTV while continuing to write, ultimately expanding into screenwriting. While producing a movie in New Orleans in 2012, I met my future husband and six months later took another leap and moved to Baton Rouge to be with him. We now live in the Garden District with our daughter and son.

My days are now spent coffee shop-hopping while working on novels, movies and TV pilots. For more information about my novels, visit my website robinpalmeronline.com.
