A member of the Writers’ League of Texas since March, Robin Overby Cox lives in Bryan/College Station.


Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?  

Robin Overby Cox: Historical fiction, women’s fiction, and nonfiction.

Scribe: What authors would you like to have a drink with, and what beverage?  

ROC: I’d love to share a ladle of water with O.E. Rolvaag who wrote Giants in the Earth long ago.

Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?  

ROC: The Book of Common Prayer, and a blank journal with a pencil for sanity’s sake.

Scribe: What have you learned from your association with the Writers’ League?  

ROC: I’ve discovered a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?  

ROC: I’ve put lots of kettles on the fire, hoping one just comes to a rolling boil sooner rather than later! I have queries out, rejections in, and prospects in hand.

Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?

ROC: I enjoyed The Train to Crystal City by Jan Jarboe Russell as far as Texas titles go.

Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!

ROC: I’m proud to be a part of the writing profession—storytelling is such fine work, and I’m ready to work hard and listen.

Thanks, Robin!
