“It is a delight just to read Robbins use of the English language.” – Chris
While Robbins fans originate from all walks of life, he has become increasing popular with male readers searching for a bigger meaning to life. Robbins does not claim to have “the answers” in his fiction, but he strives to write in a way as to promote deeper thinking and awareness within us all.
“If I was going to live or die it was going to be by the pen…”
Robbins began his writing career at an early age when a teacher in school asked the class to write a poem. In that moment he found a power in words that he had previously never known.
Robbins grew up, attended college, then joined the workforce but continued to write in his spare time. Frustrated with one dead-end job after another he finally decided that he must take his chances with the only profession that ever made any sense. He explains, “So I left my thankless corporate job after years of waking up sick and dreading each day. Though I had little money in the bank, I decided right then if I was going to live or die it was going to be by the pen.”
“I enjoyed this book from cover to cover…” – Bruce
Men eager for something “new” and “different” are drawn to Robbins and his unique style. The release of his novel, The Reluctant Human, found readers embracing the deeply poignant and heartfelt story of Scott Bauman who longed to find meaning in a mediocre life.
Bruce continues, “This story captures a turning point where he loses more of himself; and then finds the strength to take back that fire for life he once had. Many of us are always looking for the neon light, pointing for the direction in life that is less painful, easy, and brings us happiness. This story is about that battle between mind and soul; to do what society wants us to do, AND what I was meant to do. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover; this brings the reality of what most of us are thinking everyday as we continue living our daily lives.”
Amazon Top Rated
Robbins has enjoyed many stints on Amazon’s Top Rated list and continues to add new fans daily. He states, “I write because I have too but I am deeply grateful for the many readers who follow my work and the people I have been able to connect with.”
