Robby was born In Palermo, to Sicilian/Austrian parents, who migrated to Australia when she was a small child. But she never forgot the culture she left behind. It's ingrained in her DNA in inexplicable ways, drawing her back time and time again.
When Robby found her writing groove, she began a love affair with Sicily. She thrills in creating adventures with large extended family dynamics and the hope of happiness and everlasting love. Her passion for Mediterranean has spawned several books spanning the coastal towns of Palermo, Cefalù, Messina, and Taormina.
Her latest novel, a rural romance set in Australia, stems from a deep love for her adopted home. It showcases a different way of life, depicting its natural ruggedness and contrasting lush rain forests and unique fauna and flora.
Australia is where she met her English born husband. They have been happily married since their teens and call Adelaide their home. They have an adult daughter and son, who have given them grandchildren. When Robby isn’t working as a support worker for people with disability, she is writing and reading.
