Robin Hobb Life

Early life

Margaret Astrid Lindholm was born in Berkeley, California, in 1952, but she grew up in Fairbanks, Alaska, from the age of ten. She attended the University of Denver for a year and then returned to Alaska after graduating from Austin E. Lathrop High School. She married Fred Ogden, a young girl from Kodiak, which is located at the tip of south-central Alaska's south-central Alaska's north-central Alaska. Lindholm published her first book at the age of 30, balancing between writing and caring for her four children when her husband worked as a commercial fisherman. "Writing fits into strange places," she characterized her process. It's during naptime, and it's sitting by the bath tub writing, it's writing after the children are in bed.' Hobb also worked part-time, including waitressing and in mail delivery early in her career.

Personal life

She now works under both names and lives on a tiny farm outside of Roy, Washington.

Robin Hobb Career

Writing career

Hobb's work has appeared under a variety of pen names, including M. Lindholm and Megan Lindholm from 1979, as well as as Robin Hobb from 1995. Margaret, her first name, had to change to Megan as a result of a miscommunication with her first editor. Megan Lindholm's writing received critical acclaim, as well as Hugo and Nebula award nominations for her short fiction, but it didn't sell well. In 1995, the author began writing a secondary-world fantasy. Robin Hobb, an androgynous pen name, was deliberately chosen for her latest book, which is based on a first-person male narrator. Hobb's writing as a writer was extremely well-received and has appeared on New York Times bestseller lists. Hobb and Lindholm bylines, and she writes as a result of her research.

Lindholm contributed her first short story to a children's magazine, which culminated in an early career writing for children. Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, and Highlights for Children were some of her children's short stories. She also contributed educational books, short works of fiction, and a very short list of words that were used in SRA's programmed reading collection.

Lindholm began writing short stories in fanzines like Space and Time in the 1970s (edited by Gordon Linzner). "Bones for Dulath," the short story that appeared in the 1979 Amazons, was her first professional sale as a fantasy writer. Ki and Vandien were the primary protagonists of anthology, which also included her recurring characters. The anthology, published by DAW Books in Year's Best Anthology, received a World Fantasy Award for Year's Best Anthology. In 1980, a second story starring Ki and Vandien, "The Little One," was published in Fantastic Stories.

Megan Lindholm appeared exclusively under the name until 1995. Her work under that name ranges from fantasy adventure (the Ki and Vandien tales) to urban fantasy. Wizard of the Pigeons, 1986, was one of the first works to bring her wider notice.

Harpy's Flight, Lindholm's first book, was released by Ace in 1983. It was the first of four books about Ki and Vandien, the first of which was published in 1989. She contributed short stories to Liavek, a global anthology, from 1985 to 1988, and co-wrote a book, The Gypsy with Steven Brust. The Gypsy was released both as a paper book and as part of a new multimedia CD that contained the novel's text and Boiled in Lead album Songs From the Gypsy, which was intended to the novel and featured songs written by Brust and his Cats Laughing bandmate Adam Stemple, which inspired the creation of both the book and album.

Megan Lindholm has continued to publish short stories, including an appearance in the 2013 anthology Year's Best SF 18.

Robin Hobb, a pseudonym used by Lindholm for writing epic fantasy stories, first appeared in 1995. Her writing has concentrated on the Realm of the Elderly, a collection of 16 books in five parts. Four trilogies and one tetralogy are included in this book: the Farseer, the Livery Traders, the Tawny Man, the Rain Wild, and the Fool, all have the same origins.

Hobb's first work was the Farseer trilogy, narrated in first person by FitzChivalry Farseer, the prince's illegitimate son of a prince, and starring an enigmatic character named the Fool. The first volume of the trilogy, Assassin's Apprentice, was published in 1995, followed by Royal Assassin in 1996 and Assassin's Quest in 1997. Hobb next wrote a nautical fantasy series called the Liveship Traders, set in a different part of the Elderlings world and starring pirates, sea serpents, a family of traders, and their living ships. Between 1998 and 2000, the trilogy's books, Ship of Magic, The Mad Ship, and Ship of Destiny, were released. Hobb returned to Fitz' first-person story in the Tawny Man trilogy, which follows the events of the Liveship books and includes Fool's Errand, Fool's Fate, and Fool's Fate. Robin Hobb's first nine books, which included three trilogies set in the Realm of the Elderly, had sold over one million copies as of 2003.

Hobb's only works to be set outside of the Elderlings world are three books in the Soldier Son trilogy (Shaman's Crossing, Forest Mage, and Renegade's Magic). In addition, The Inheritance, a series of short stories written both as Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm, which was published in 2011.

Hobb's four books were published from 2009 to 2013 (Dragon Keeper, Dragon Haven, City of Dragons, and Blood of Dragons). As Hobb's older trilogies, this series is set in the same world as Hobb's Realm of the Elderlings. Hobb's Assassin, Fool's Quest, and Assassin's Fate told the story in 2014, decades later in life. The last book, Assassin's Fate, includes not only Fitz's earlier books, but also the Liveship and Rain Wild ones.

Famed authors show support for debut novelist after only two people showed up to her book signing

www.dailymail.co.uk, December 6, 2022
Author Chelsea Banning hosted a book signing at Pretty Good Books in Ashtabula, Ohio, on Saturday to promote her debut novel, 'Of Crowns and Legends.' She revealed her disappointment on Twitter the next day after nearly 40 people RSVP'd to the event, but only two showed up. Banning admitted that she was 'kind of upset' and a 'little embarrassed,' inspiring other authors to commiserate about their own perceived failures. Atwood, who has written more than fifty books, including 'The Handmaid's Tale,' recalled how she once had a book signing where no one showed up. King, another prolific best-selling author, shared a similar story about his first signing for his second book, the 1975 horror novel 'Salem's Lot.' Jodi Picoult, Neil Gaiman, Robin Hobb, Cheryl Strayed, Min Jin Lee, and Jonathan Coe were also among the renowned writers who reached out to Banning.
