I am a gardener. I own part of a pigeon. His name is Look Edwin. I don't like to cook, except for making pies, cookies and jam. Every summer, I try to make at least 52 jars of jam, so I have one for each week until the jam making season rolls around again. I also try to make jam for good friends. I do not like having to cook meals on time. I have to cook anyway. I have written books, poetry and short stories. I've also written children's stories. I've been a Nebula Finalist twice and a Hugo Finalist once. All nominations were for my short fiction. My first book was Harpy's Flight. I hope that my last book hasn't been written yet. The very best friend I ever had was a white shepherd. He is gone many years. I will always miss him. I am a mom and a grandmother. I am also a sister, a spouse, an aunt, and a great-aunt. I used to be someone's daughter. I wish I still were. I have let swallows fly free from my hands. I have been hugged by a faun. When I was a child, I ran with wolves. I do not like to eat fish. Except halibut. I am terrible at tying knots.
I also write and publish under the name Robin Hobb.
