About

Robin is a writer and editor in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She worked as a staff writer for three years and as the food editor for two years at Weekly Alibi, the local alt-weekly paper (RIP). She now contributes to edible New Mexico, Southwest Contemporary, and New Mexico Magazine.

Robin writes about food, agriculture, art, and racial justice in the American Southwest.

In 2019, Robin opened Harvest Moon Books, a little bookshop that can be found both online and in Nob Hill, Albuquerque. Here, she sells books largely by POC, queer, and trans authors.

In her free time, Robin likes to take road trips, soak in the hot springs, and hike in the mountains of New Mexico.
