Robyn Cain


Robyn moved to England from the Punjab in the 1960s. After spending her childhood in the South of England, she married and moved to the North, finally settling in Cheshire.

She dreamed of being a writer but life had other plans. Now with a degree, PGCE and an MA behind her, she writes whenever not lecturing to post-16 students.

All of Robyn's six self published ebooks are set in Cheshire, incorporate British and Asian cultures and are in different genres which include contemporary, crime and supernatural. Her two collections of short stories are even more diverse. She has dabbled in scripts for theatre and radio and had her short stories published in India.
