About the author (2020)

After graduating from Cambridge with a First Class degree in Modern and Medieval Languages, Robin worked for five years at Google. Since 2014, he has been the Senior Editorial Manager at Audible, responsible for deciding which audiobooks they promote to their customers and how. This has given him first-hand knowledge of the publishing industry and an extensive network of contacts, particularly authors and actors. He also runs their podcast, Audible Sessions, and has interviewed multiple authors including Fiona Barton, Clare Mackintosh, Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Anthony Horowitz and Jeffery Deaver to name a few. His conversations with them are what inspired him to start writing.
