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 & Yum Yummy Cake (I Can Read 2)?
What a wonderful lighthearted book on repentance! Aug 5, 2009
This was our first ever Mrs. Rosey Posey book but it will definitely not be our last.
My girls loved this book. When Sarah found herself in an interesting predicament regarding the cake my twins could not decide what she was going to do. When she hides...it was perfect time to explain how we can hide from people but never from God. Mrs. Rosey Posey's response was kind, loving and totally glorifying to God.
I found this to me one of my favorite Christian children's books. I loved the way Robin Gunn clearly explained the idea of "repentance" and God's ever loving response to our true repent. She worded it in such a way that little minds could grasp the idea of forgiveness with out being too flowery or over their heads.
My favorite part was the ending when Sarah and Mrs. Rosey Posey discuss how friends love each other even when they dont' agree. That is a value that I try very hard to instill in my girls. I want them to understand that my love for them is unconditional as well...even if I don't agree with their actions.
Hat's off to Robin for creating a powerful message in a kid's book that is subtle and easy to understand. Great moment for discussion were made from this little book! I recommend it for every parent....especially if you have more then one child. Thanks Robin!Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Yum-Yummy Birthday Cake (I Can Read!)
