Mr. T.S. Robinson is a Science-Fiction/Fantasy writer who moved to the First Coast over 10 years ago. Specifically he wanted to live next to an ocean, raise his family and write his books. He has succeeded in doing all three. Since he has written an excellent auto-biography and posted it on his website: http://www.tsrbook.com/biography.htm We will let you read that for yourself. And take a few minutes to browse through the rest of his site. He has done an excellent job of informing his readers about the stories he has written, the site is well laid-out and in keeping with his genre. Mr. Robinson also keeps in touch with his fans using his Facebook Page and Twitter accounts. See below for those links. We hope you too will “Like” his Facebook page and “Follow” him on Twitter.
Over the years Mr. Robinson has written and published 3 books and are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Books-A-Million online most in both paperback and eBook formats. At the bottom of this page you can click on the books and buy yourself a copy. I was able to read Mirror of Opposition this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am a big fan of most of the Science Fiction/Fantasy genre and believe that he has done a great job with his characters, storyline and creating a believable world. Mr. Robinson uses a sarcastic wit with his characters that I really enjoyed. You can read more about each of the books on his website. All three have gotten great reviews and are well worth the read. I am looking forward to the next one.

Below are some general questions we will be asking each writer and hope that their current and future fans will enjoy the answers:
Area of NE Fla: – Jacksonville Beach
Who or What Got You Started in Writing? Dungeons & Dragons. I either played or DM’d every game module from the 1980’s. In that RPG, you’re either part of an adventure or creating one to take others through, so the art of story-telling (for me) began with that game which I played all through my adolescence.
What Do You Like Most About Writing? The creativity and freedom involved in making up a story.
What Inspires You As You Are Writing? (What keeps you going?) The sense of adventure and mystery associated with the story being developed.
What Do You Dislike Most About Writing? The length of time involved to get a story written, reviewed, edited, formatted and published. You have to invest years of your life in the process of turning out a novel.
Which Books Do You Read Most? (Top Five Authors and/or Series): Piers Anthony (Incarnations of Immortality Series, Battle Circle), Gary Gygax (Gord the Rogue series), RA Salvatore (Drizzt series), Michael Moorcock (Elric series), Eric Van Lustbader (Sunset Warrior Trilogy), and David Gemmell.
What Do You Do To Relax? (What are your hobbies) Fitness, martial arts, comedy, a good book or movie, good food, good location and good company.
Do You Do A Lot Of Research For Your Stories? And if so, what sources do you find the most valuable? Online mostly through GOOGLE searches is where I find my context. I also have several books I’ve collected over the years that revolve around fantasy settings and creatures.
What are you working on now? The sequel to MIRROR OF OPPOSITION, entitled MIRROR OF CHAOS. This will be an ongoing series of titles, beginning with MIRROR OF ….
What is the one piece of advice you would give to upcoming writers? The key to success (with anything you attempt) boils down to 2 things – patience and persistence. Set goals and work towards them.
