Robin Paige

Robin Paige

Robin Paige is the pen name shared by Susan Wittig Albert and her husband and coauthor, Bill Albert. Bill grew up collecting butterflies and Pleistocene fossils on the outskirts of Houston. During his university years, he went skin diving and cave exploring in Mexico, volunteered in the excavation of a Roman theater in England, and built longtime friendships with a number of Brits. Stationed near Washington, D.C. while he was in the Army, he pursued research interests in history and archaeology at the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress. He became a private pilot and a skilled amateur photographer, experienced intensive training in firearms, and took solo walkabouts across Canada, Northern Europe, South America, and the South Pacific. Susan is widely known for her long-running mystery series: the China Bayles herbal mysteries, the Darling Dahlias, and the Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter, as well as for her memoirs and edited collections. "Teaming up with Bill has been a huge pleasure," she says. "As Robin Paige, we have more strengths than each of us individually. Plus, the projects have been hugely interesting and the research travel in England great fun!" When Susan isn't writing, you'll find her in her garden or in her favorite chair with a book or a needlework project in her lap. The Alberts live on 31 back-country acres of the Texas Hill Country, with an assortment of dogs, cats, and barnyard critters.
