Ask Jo Robinson Some Questions

Posted on January 21, 2013 at 1:40 AM


Introducing Jo Robinson!




As Jo is in the process of updating her Amazon.com profile, she sent me this to tell you all:

     I live in the wilds of Zimbabwe with my husband Angus, a dog with an odd sense of humour, four birds, and two turkeys. One of the birds spends most of her time on my head, weaving my hair into dreadlocks that have to be cut out, so every day’s a bad hair day for me. I’m into karma yoga, don’t eat meat, and plot constantly about how to bring about world peace, but I make up for all that holiness by drinking a lot of wine, often using excessively foul language, and eating too much chocolate and cheese. I also eat loads of garlic, which is apparently deeply offensive on the spiritual plane. I spend most of my time hunched over my computer. This is a good thing though. Strange things happen in the real world. I have two novels being given their final polishes, Shadow People to be published in two weeks, and African Me & Satellite TV not too long after that. I have two short stories on Amazon at the moment, Fly Birdie and The Visitation.


 {Admin: My first thoughts on this were- WOW Zimbabwe!}

You said you only recenty started writing when the story demanded to be told. How did you experience the inspiration? Did you embrace it immediately, question it, or fight it?

At some point in time would you consider weaving a science fiction story involving your feathered buddies as cleverly disguised aliens with a master plan? (http://nextyouniverse.com)

What do you like about Zimbabwe, and how does the place change your writing?
