A note from Shawn P. B. Robinson
I love to write humor and adventure and I think they mix quite well together. I hope you enjoy the Arestana and Jerry the Squirrel series and I think you’ll find yourself hooked in no time.
Shawn P. B. Robinson, or as his friends call him, “Shawn P. B. Robinson,” has been writing and telling stories for many years, but only for family and small groups. Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, a potentially deadly illness changed all that. As he lay in the hospital, wondering if he would live or die (spoiler alert, he lived), he started to write Arestana: The Key Quest.
It wasn’t long before two other books (and an off-shoot) were written and he was moving toward exposing the world to his strange and odd sense of humor. As you read and leave five-star reviews, think of the joy you are bringing to Shawn P. B. Robinson (or “Shawn P. B. Robinson” for short) and to his whole family who no longer has to bear the full weight of listening to his stories alone.
