Robin Maxwell began writing novels about the historical figures she had been obsessing about since graduating from Tufts University with a degree in Occupational Therapy. Her first novel, “The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn,” now in its 24th printing, won two YA awards and has been translated into fourteen languages. “The Wild Irish” – an epic tale of Ireland’s rebel queen, Grace O’Malley – closed out her Elizabethan Quartet, and is now in development for a television series. “Signora Da Vinci” and “Jane: The Woman Who loved Tarzan” are tales of the remarkable women behind two of the world’s most beloved wildmen – Maestro Leonardo and Lord Greystoke. Robin lives with her husband of thirty years, Max Thomas, at High Desert Eden, a wildlife sanctuary in the Mojave Desert.
