About the Author
Marjorie Harshaw Robie was born in Minneapolis Minnesota to parents of Irish ancestry. After early years in Maryland, she moved to Massachusetts where she graduated from Tufts University with a degree in English. With husband Eugene Robie, she spent years in Virginia and West Virginia, before moving to the bucolic and historic town of Ipswich Massachusetts, where they raised their six children, and Ms. Robie was a school teacher. Years later, she fulfilled a desire to run for public office, winning a seat on the Ipswich School Committee, serving four years as Chairman. Her interest in history led first to years of service on the Ipswich Historical Commission, then to a personal journey of family and Irish history that caught fire in the discovery of her relative's diaries. Proclaimed "an Irish treasure" upon their return to Ireland where Ms. Robie donated them to the Public Record Office in Belfast, the diaries formed the structure of two fascinating historical volumes, Dwelling Place of Dragons (2007) and the new Dueling Dragons. Ms. Robie is a sought-after speaker on Irish history, ancestral research and the critical clash of politics and religion.
