Robin Epstein is a writer, runner, professor and astronaut* (*in her own mind). Beginning her career as a comic and television writer, Robin was lucky enough to become head writer and on-air sidekick for a teen girl game show called "Clued In," where she was known as "Guru Robin," an embarrassing nickname she's unable to shake. Her last young adult novel, God Is In the Pancakes, was an official selection of the 2012 New York State Reading Association (NYSRA) Charlotte Award Master List. She's written for the New York Times, Medium, Quartz, as well as other publications. A contributor to This American Life on NPR, she also writes video games and books for TV shows on the Disney Channel. Robin attended Princeton University, got her MFA from Columbia University, and teaches at NYU. She currently lives in New York with her fetching pit bull Bandit.
