About

Robin Jones Gunn was in first grade when her teacher wrote on her report card, “Robin has not yet grasped her basic math skills but she does keep the entire class entertained at rug time with her stories.” 

Robin's 5th BirthdayMany years later it was Robin’s husband who noticed her gift for storytelling.He urged her to attend a writers’ conference and take classes. Those first steps led to Robin’s devotions, articles, interviews and children’s books being published.

Robin’s writing career took a turn while on a camping trip with their church youth group. She was concerned when she saw what the girls were reading in their tent. The 13 year-old girls challenged her saying, “If you don’t want us to read these books then you should write novels for us. We’ll even tell you what to write. How hard could that be?”

Early Mornings in Robin’s Nest

For over two years Robin carved out time to write by getting up at 3am, three days a week. Each week she would read the finished pages to the girls in the youth group and they would send her home to write and rewrite some more. After ten rejections Robin’s first novel about Christy Miller was accepted for publication.

WIDE-A GIGGLE A CRY A SIGH

More stories followed and soon the Christy Miller series was joined by the Sierra Jensen series, Christy & Todd: the College Years, the Katie Weldon series, Christy & Todd: the Married Years, Christy & Todd: the Baby Years and the Haven Makers series. Thousands of readers have contacted Robin over the years to let her know how these stories have changed their lives.

Stories Travel the Globe

Robin’s 100 books have sold over 5.5 million copies worldwide. To her great delight, her books and movies are doing exactly what she always hoped to do – traveling around the world and telling people about God’s love. She is doing the same and has spoken at events around the US and Canada as well as in South America, Africa and Europe.

Robin and her husband have two grown children and live in Hawai’i where she writes in rhythm with her life verse:

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the LORD Jesus – the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” Acts 20:24
