More About Robin Jones Gunn & Christina Diane Schofield
When Robin Jones Gunn was in first grade her teacher wrote on her report card, “Robin keeps the entire class entertained at rug time with her stories.”
Even with such an early affirmation, Robin didn’t seriously consider becoming a writer during high school or college. She was more intrigued by the idea of traveling to foreign lands and telling people about God’s love.
But Robin’s husband also noticed her gift for story-telling and urged her to attend a writers’ conference. That first conference opened the door for publication of devotions, articles, interviews and eventually 15 children’s books.
While on a camping trip with their church youth group, Robin grew concerned when she saw what the girls were reading in their tent. The 13 year-old girls challenged her, saying, “If you don’t want us to read these books then you should write novels for us. We’ll even tell you what to write. How hard could that be?”
Early Mornings in Robin’s Nest
For over two years Robin carved out time to write by getting up at 3am, three days a week. Each week she would read the finished pages to the girls in the youth group and they would send her home to write and rewrite some more. After ten rejections Robin’s first novel was accepted for publication and released in 1988. More books followed and soon the Christy Miller series was joined by the Sierra Jensen series, the College Years and the Katie Weldon series. Thousands of readers have contacted Robin over the years to let her know how these stories changed their life.
Robin continued exploring other avenues of storytelling with gentle romances in the Glenbrooke series, women’s friendships in the Sisterchicks® series and family relationships in five women’s novels and two Father Christmas novellas.
Stories Travel the Globe
Over the past 25 years Robin has written 82 books with almost 4.5 million copies sold worldwide. To her great delight, Robin’s books are doing exactly what she always hoped to do – they are traveling around the world and telling people about God’s love. She is doing the same. Over the past ten years Robin has been invited to speak at events around the US and Canada as well as in South America, Africa, Europe and Australia.
Robin and her husband have two grown children and have been married for 35 years. They live in Hawai’i where she continues to write and speak in rhythm with her life verse:
“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the LORD Jesus – the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” Acts 20:24.
Robin Jones Gunn currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Robin Jones Gunn was born in 1955.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mrs Rosey Posey & Fine China Plate (I Can Read 2!)?
Mrs. Rosey Posey Dec 5, 2009
Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Chocolate Covered Cherries is the earlier title of this wonderful story. All children will benefit from the strong message that parents set guidelines for their children out of love and that God has made them unique with a special plan for their lives. The Mrs. Rosey Posey books were all excellent stories and re-read by my children until the covers were falling off.
Great book for the young & not so yound Aug 10, 2009
I bought this book for my daughter when she was young and she loved it. I still have the recipe card she wrote from the chocolate covered cherries at the back of this book. The book has such a good message of purity that I decided to give to one of the teen-age girls in our church with a Lenox china plate with her name indelibly written on the back. She also loved it and loved the Scripture telling her that Jesus valued her so much that He paid for her with His life. Desi in California
