Pen name

Colin C. Robinson




I was born in 1935, the family relocating to Fife, Scotland from London as a result of the bombing in 1934. Educated in Edinburgh, I soon discovered the joys of the great outdoors, the beauty of the Highlands with its colourful past.

Following National Service I came to specialise in the logistics of packaging, handling, storage, security and transport, of a wide variety of items in often interesting circumstances.

I came to Australia with my wife and four young children in 1973, taking an executive position with the Myer organisation where I remained till 1991. Deciding to retire, to enjoy my family and take the opportunity to explore extensively through the more remote areas of my chosen homeland, also to pursue my love of sailing, writing, gardening and golf.

During this time, I joined U3A, tutoring creative writing for a while, commencing work on my first novel in 2010.

I currently live on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, with my wife, Elizabeth.
