Robin Spano.

Come and meet a famed crime writer tonight at Fernie Heritage Library.

Robin Spano has written three books, all based around fictional undercover agent Clare Vengel, who investigates suspicious deaths across the country.

Robin grew up in downtown Toronto and now lives in Lions Bay, BC. When she’s not lost in fiction, she loves to get outside snowboarding, hiking, boating, and riding the curves of the local highways in her big black pick-up truck.

Her historical role model is Winston Churchill, more for his independent thinking than his drinking. Her secret dream was to be one of Charlie’s Angels, but since real life danger terrifies her, she writes crime fiction instead.

She’s a founding member of Off The Page Toastmasters – a public speaking group for writers.

She is married to a man who hates reading and encourages her endlessly. Which is great, because it’s Keith who drags her away from her computer to do all those fun things outside.

Come and meet Robin tonight at 7 p.m. at Fernie Heritage Library.
