Homeschool Author Mom Robin Merrill

Another busy homeschool-mom-author is up on the blog today. Welcome, Robin Merrill!






How long have you been homeschooling?

5 years

How long have you been writing?

Since I could write, but professionally, 17 years.

What gave you the writing bug?

Not sure!

Do you remember the first story you wrote?

Yes. I was in third grade and I handwrote an 18-page story about meeting Amy Grant. My poor teacher!

What type of books do your write?

My first love is poetry, but I also write fiction and devotionals.


How do you find time to write?

Not sure! I sometimes write late into the night.


Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

I always want to be honest in my writing, and sometimes that offends people, but I don't mean to!


Do your kids help with your creative process or give you ideas?

They certainly try. They are always giving me ideas, and I do read my stories to my fourth-grade daughter, who has found some plot holes for me.


What is the single most significant thing you can tell us about your writing career?

It has allowed me to stay home with my children, and for that I am eternally grateful.


Can you tell us about a character in your current work in progress?

I am currently spending lots of time with Gertrude. I met Gert in my first novella, Grace Space. I didn't expect her to be so loved, but she was, so I decided to give her her own series: Gertrude, Gumshoe. I am currently wrapping up book three!



Fiction from Robin Merrill:

She begged God to rescue her. He said, “Go.” So she headed out into the blizzard. In a car that wasn’t exactly hers, with a dog who wasn’t exactly a rat terrier, she drove. Until she ran out of gas in the small Maine town of Mattawooptock. Mattawoopwhat? What on earth is God thinking? But it is there, in a weird little bathroom in a weird little church in a weird little town that Maggie Hansen finds herself. And as God would have it, she finds a lot more than that.
