More About Robin Jones Gunn
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 Until Tomorrow (Christy & Todd V1)?
Romance at its purist Nov 22, 2006
I remember being in high school and being addicted to trashy romance novels. It was a time before I knew Christ and I didnt have much faith in him or anything else. Now, in my mid-twenties, I happened to pick this up at a used book store and read it in one day. It is the kind of lasting romance I was looking for when I was younger and I found that even now, married and having a relationship with Christ, I was able to learn some things from the book. It quoted scripture, put it into perspective and provided me with a romance that could only be conveyed in paper. I am going to pass it on to a young woman in my church and hopefully she'll enjoy it as fully as I did.
A review on the book Until Tomorrow Oct 23, 2006
Until Tomorrow, written by Robin Jones Gunn, is a wonderful book that is filled with adventure, romance, and forever friendships.Christy Miller is on an adventure in Europe with her boyfriend Todd and her best friend Katie. Christy goes to college in Europe and works at an orphanage. This trip is kind of like a test for Christy on if she wants to continue her schooling in Europe or if she wants to go back to the United States, marry Todd and move on from there. Her answer is revealed to her through God and his mysterious ways. I liked this book because of all the emotions and how everything works out according to God's will. I would recommend this book to any teenage girl or young adult that likes reading a book with a happy ending.
Very good shipping. Sep 1, 2006
I was very happy with the shipping time and condition of the book. It actually arrived before the date given to me, so I was very pleased. I would definitely buy again.
Too Grown Up For This Jul 26, 2006
It's sad when you've grown up with something, and when you go back as an adult to look at it again, it just doesn't hold up. I was IN LOVE with this series from age 11-16, so when she came out with a new, "grown up" continuation, I couldn't wait. But by "grown up" I think this author still means under 18, because this just really isn't realistic to adult life. Christy hasn't changed. She's still a whiny teenager. The spiritual aspect seems way over forced much of the time as well, and makes it seem far from realistic. As a young teen, that's what I loved about it- it was a fairy tale. But now we've grown up, and this just seemed obnoxious and dumbed down. As a wife and mother, this just seemed far too immature. I'm so sorry, I wish I loved it.
The Love Continues... Mar 4, 2006
If you grew up with Christy Miller you understand this book and the character of Christy, than if you're just randomly picking up "Until Tomorrow" to read. I grew up with The Christy Miller series, a lot of things I learned from life were from Christy, Todd, Katie and the rest of the group. This book continues not only the Christy Miller series but also the Sierra Jensen series which are interlocked.
When Todd and Katie come to Switzerland after a year of seeing Christy who's been studying abroad, Christy starts feeling unsure of her relationship. It's another part of her growing up and another part of her growing relationship with Todd. Todd isn't one of those guys who is over exhuberant, he's very laid back and ALWAYS waits on God's okay before taking the next step in their relationship. Christy is passionate, she's ready to know whether Todd is seeing them together forever and she's also feeling insecure because she, herself, doesn't know whether Todd's the one she's suppose to be with. This isn't the best book in the College Years series, but it has really good moments and it's made me want to go to the Blue Grotto and maybe even have my own adventure finding the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhangen!
If you've read the Christy Miller series, Christy's Diary, Departures, Sierra Jensen series 1-11, all in this order (don't read the last Sierra Book until AFTER "Until Tomorrow"- trust me), than you are ready for Until Tomorrow, otherwise you might feel a little lost because in each of the books, the characters develope more and more.
