Modern Meets Ancient. 

Tropical Paradise Meets Paranormal Terror.

A thoughtful and beautiful eco-fantasy, Ancient Tides Ashore explores human kinship across time, culture and belief, as well as our relationship to the unknown within—and among—us.

Walking the Dusk is a wonderfully skin-crawling, page-turning blend of Stephen King’s IT and Dante’s Inferno. Robinson taps into childhood fear and adult understanding for a fantastic descent into madness, loss, and identity.”

—Peter Clines, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Room

“Not just dark fantasy, but evocative thriller, Walking the Dusk takes readers into psychosomatic realms of terror and of beauty, of events and shadowed ways that slip between our dreams to our waking days and spread into the cosmos of infinite consciousness. A wild ride for lovers of reflective supernatural journeys.”

—Eric J. Guignard, multiple award-winning author and editor, including That Which Grows Wild and Doorways to the Deadeye

Who Is This Guy?

It was at the tender age of 7 that an interconnection of cells and organs called Mike Robinson (then Mikey) penned, or pencilled, his first story, The Aliens That Invaded My Backyard!. A runaway international bestseller, it went on to win the World Fantasy Award, Hugo Award, and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. Or maybe those things were also just products of his imagination. 





He later became the author of multiple books, most of which tack toward the weird, the darkly fantastic, the metaphysical, the odd residue scraped from the bottom of our "souls" (he was a PhD in puns). And there's plenty more where that came from. He has received honors from Writers of the Future, Publishers Weekly's BookLife Prize, the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the Bookfest Awards, the Maxy Awards, the Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards and the Screencraft Awards. 
But the story buck doesn't stop there. A native of Los Angeles, his blood is half-celluloid, so it was inevitable that he also became a screenwriter and producer. In addition, he'
s a freelance book editor/coach, copywriter and illustrator. He is represented by Jennifer Azantian, of the Azantian Literary Agency.
