BOOK TITLE: The Best of the Nest
Robin Conte moved with her family to DeKalb County, Georgia, when she was in the first grade, and she’s been circling the perimeter ever since. She ventured out of state long enough to graduate from Wake Forest, study in Venice, and, decades later, return to Europe with her family of six and live in Munich for three years. During the interim decades, she taught 8th grade English and 3rd grade everything, obtained an M.A. in education from Emory, got married, and had four children.
Now back in DeKalb County, Robin is a freelance writer and columnist. Her early work has appeared in several publications in metro Atlanta and beyond, including Chicken Soup for the Soul, the Neighbor Newspapers, BuckHaven Lifestyle magazine, and Perimeter North Lifestyle magazine.
Her column, Robin’s Nest, celebrates our everyday moments with humor and heart. It runs in the Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, Buckhead, and Brookhaven Reporter Newspapers and in Atlanta Senior Life, and it has been recognized with multiple awards from the Ga Press Association, including the prestigious Joe Parham Trophy (first place) for humor column and first place for lifestyle column. Robin’s columns are now available in a collection entitled The Best of the Nest.
Robin lives with her husband in an empty nest and spends her days among semi-colons, colons, and serial commas.
