Robin Hobb schedules book signing in London
Fantasy author Robin Hobb will be signing her latest novel The Dragon Keeper at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 11th July 2009 from 1 – 2pm.
Robin Hobb has written stories ever since she learned to write. She knew from a very early age that she wanted to be an author but was also realistic in knowing that very few are able to support themselves financially through writing alone. However, she clung on to the dream and was prepared to do other jobs to bring in the money whilst she continued writing. At the age of ten she moved from California to Alaska in a Volkswagen Camper Van and the family settled into a far less comfortable but far more exciting life. Hobb holds the move to Alaska as the single most important thing is her shaping as a writer, the rural setting involved getting her hands dirty and tasks such as harvesting and rearing animals helped her to gain an insight into what living in medieval times (the predominant setting of fantasy novels) was really like.
