Robin was born in Athens, not long before the 1981 earthquake. As a boy he lived in Chennai (India) and Hampshire (UK) before moving to Mauritius at the age of nine, the paradise island to which he still returns every year. He has since lived in New Zealand & France, and is now settled in Crouch End, London, with his wife, Kate.
Like many of us, he is intrigued to see how the world will change over the coming years with the evolution of artificial intelligence and virtual reality, and as a fan of fantasy RPGs such as Skyrim and The Witcher 3, he has combined his interests to inform his story.
“Extropia,” explains Robin, “is essentially the convergence of some of my favourite stories: The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, with some of the biggest role playing games ever created: Skyrim and The Witcher 3". Extropia: Mind Game explores what might happen if artificial intelligence becomes so advanced that the emotions of the characters in these games become indecipherable from those of a human.
Extropia: Mind Game is his debut novel. The rest of the Extropia series has already been plotted and is being written.
