BIOGRAPHY

Robbie grew up on a cattle ranch near Islay, a hamlet barely west of the Saskatchewan border. A lifelong Albertan, he’s also lived in Turner Valley, Lloydminster, Kitscoty and Edmonton, where he is today. After studying English and creative writing at the University of Alberta he somehow wandered into journalism, publishing and copywriting. His work has appeared in Eighteen Bridges, Alberta ViewsAvenue Edmonton and a slew of small Alberta magazines.
