Robin Jones Gunn is the best-selling, award-winning author of over 60 books with over 3 million copies of her titles sold worldwide.
Robin grew up in southern California and began writing for publication in 1985. After writing fourteen picture books for children and over 60 articles, her story-telling attention turned to writing novels for teens. This came about as a result of being involved with her husband, Ross in full time youth ministry for over 20 years. The Christy Miller Series was followed by the Sierra Jensen Series and the Christy and Todd; the College Years Series. Bethany House currently distributes all 29 teen books.
As Robin's audience of teen readers grew older, they asked for more novels and she began writing The Glenbrooke Series for Multnomah Publishers. This eight book series includes Secrets, Whispers, Echoes, Sunsets, Clouds, Waterfalls, Woodlands and Wildflowers as well as a unique gift book titled Tea at Glenbrooke.
Her new novels include Sisterchicks on the Loose!, Sisterchicks Do the Hula! and Sisterchicks in Sombreros published by Multnomah. In 2005 watch for Gardenias for Breakfast, a Women of Faith novel published by WestBow as well as Sisterchicks Down Under! and Sisterchicks in Gondolas!
Robin has been a guest speaker in a variety of locations from Hawaii to Helsinki. She teaches at writers' conferences internationally and across the U.S. and is frequently interviewed on radio and television within the U.S. and Canada. Woman's Day magazine featured Robin twice in interviews and appeared on the cover of the September, 2004 issue of RT Book Club.

Robin wrote about her children's early years in two lovely gift books: Mothering by Heart and Gentle Passages: Guiding Your Daughter into Womanhood, both by Multnomah.
Robin's passion as a storyteller is to introduce women to God, the relentless lover. Her stories carry the common theme that we are God's first love and He never stops pursuing us because He wants us back.
