Meet Betsy Robinson. An inspirational Ordinary Guru and an Extraordinary Writer!
Betsy submitted her story, My Dogged Life and it knocked my socks off. We talk to Besty about her life, career and inspiration.
Betsy Robinson was raised an atheist and went on to make her living as a writer and editor of spiritual subject matter: as managing editor of Spirituality & Health magazine for six and a half years and as an editor of spiritual psychology and books about shamans and traditional healers. She attended a four-year healing school (energy medicine) and has been a columnist for UPI’s Religion & Spirituality Forum, but she still isn’t sure what she believes. … And that’s okay. While she’s figuring it out, she writes stories.
Her first novel, Plan Z by Leslie Kove, was published by Mid-List Press in 2001 as winner of their First Novel Award Series. Her second novel, Cats on a Pole, is circulating to publishers. And her third novel, The Last Will & Testament of Zelda McFigg has just won Black Lawrence Press's 2013 Big Moose Prize and will be published in May 2014.
