Interview with Robin Gregory
Robin Gregory is a devoted wife and mother, and student of mystical teachings. Born in Pensacola, Florida, she grew up in California, accompanied by seven siblings, and surrounded by horses, real cowboys, and the occasional rattlesnake. She has always been drawn to helping others, a trait that began, to her mother's horror, with bringing home swallow chicks stricken from their nests. She has worked as a journalist, lay minister, and infant massage instructor for mothers and babies at risk. Her studies include Literature and Creative Writing at University of California, Santa Cruz and Stanford University's Writer's Workshop. She lives with her husband and son in a Carmel cottage old enough to make you sneeze. The Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman, her first published novel, has won 14 awards and is shortlisted for more. More about her is available on her website: www.MadMysticalJourney.com The Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman was published in the USA in 2015. The novel depicts how, through kinship with otherworldly beings, a disabled boy masters miraculous powers that his adoptive father refuses to recognise. Moojie Littleman is not just another orphan with extraterrestrial friends; he is not just a kid who falls into a series of magical, mystical adventures involving love and family and watermelons. He is, above all, the most unlikely and powerful hero ever known. Moral allegory, magical realism, and lyrical prose, The Improbable Wonders of Moojie Littleman tells the story of a disabled boy who is sent to St. Isidore's Fainting Goat Dairy, where determination to ‘belong’ stirs up trouble and leads to a surprising destiny – if only he can survive one last terrifying trial.
