About The Author

Nancy Robison is the author of 70 books and over 900 short stories and articles for newspapers and magazines, and mostly for young readers.

Her picture book, Ten Tall Soldiers was made into a play and produced in the Midwest; and her book, UFO Kidnap was voted children’s favorite.  She is a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times Reading by 9 Program and Kidspace for The Christian Science Monitor.

Before becoming a writer, she was a model, dancer and actress on television and motion pictures, as well as appearing in three operas; all of which have given her fuel for writing stories.  Combining her desires and talents, she wrote, produced and hosted a cablevision show called, Author to Author, where she interviewed writers, editors, publishers, librarians and readers.

Her books have won awards, been made into plays, reprinted in other languages and made into e-books.
She has been a volunteer docent at the Los Angeles Music Center and Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and also for The Performing Arts Center in Orange County, California.  Along with her husband, Robert (of 56 years), she has been active in community affairs working for The Friends of the Library, the Senior Center Garden Club and Sunday school teacher.

Besides writing, Nancy enjoys photography and has photographed numerous books and photo greeting cards.  Oil painting, tennis and line dancing are her favorite activities.

She is currently working on picture and chapter books for children.
