PRAISE FOR ROBIN'S WORK AND EDUCATION: "As a working writer for the last eighteen years, I can attest to what I believe makes a great manager... Robin is one of the most energetic, exciting, and engaged people I’ve ever met in my life. She is brilliant, creative, and has a lifetime of rich experiences, travels, and knowledge. Most of all, she leads with a warm, beating, nurturing heart. Put all these characteristics together and you have a tremendous, if not ideal advocate, partner, and guide. I can think of no writer or creative who wouldn’t benefit from having Robin launch, sustain, and extend their career." — Roger Wolfson (HEROES, CENTURY CITY, THE CLOSER, SAVING GRACE, FAIRLY LEGAL) "As a literary manager and development executive Robin is invaluable at understanding what a writer is trying to do with their work on the page and is helpful in distilling that idea so that it translates to those in the industry. She acts as a critical resource that helps to champion the work of the writer above all else to make sure that the real reason we are telling our stories is upheld above competing interests. She's a warrior for writers!" - Christina Ham (WESTWORLD, THEM: COVENANT, THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA ) "I was AMAZED at how brilliantly Robin took me over the finish line with my pilot and pitch for studio execs. She provided dramaturgical insights, market insights, character insights, performance/delivery tips, and when I told her to take a red pen to it, she shaved off 25 minutes from my pitch - and it lost nothing; actually became much sharper. I turned it into the production company - to immediately receive the email I’d been waiting months for: “We love it, we’re ready to go!” - Jennifer Haley (MINDHUNTER, HEMLOCK GROVE)
