About The Author

FFSelfiePergaRobin Lucas moved back to San Diego in 2017 after spending seven years in the Inland Empire of Southern California, an area notorious for having the highest concentration of meth labs in the state, the worst particulate smog in the country, and the third most hyper-inflated housing market in American history.¹ (He calls it the “Inbred Empire” and takes credit for coining that.)

Robin has also lived in Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Blowfish—Blowhead—crap, what was that place called again—Bullhead City, Arizona. He ditched high school and smoked a lot of pot came of age in Bullhead City where he learned to swim, shoot guns, and catch fish… by shooting them with guns. He remembers it happily as “hardly worth calling a ‘city’—it was a cluster of trailer parks near the Colorado River with a couple of truck stops, electricity maybe. Today it’s just a tourist toilet overflowing with WaveRunners and river trash from California.”²

He began writing at 22, mostly by accident, for the same reasons many writers began writing by accident: 1) he had a typewriter, 2) he had plenty of time thanks to being underemployed, and 3) he had a sudden urge to express his festering self-indulgence. (Third-person bios, for example.) He continues to write for the same reasons, except #1 because his typewriter was eventually stolen—probably by an irritated roommate tired of hearing the keys tapping.

¹ These ‘statistics’ haven’t been verified.
² The author denies allegations that he is river trash himself, despite the fact that he lives in California, and the fact that he can usually be spotted at the river during summer holidays… piss drunk, barefoot, and singing “Free Bird” badly off-key.
