Meet the Author
Mariah Robinson loves to wrap a story around a good aphorism. She began collecting them when she was ten and has clothbound and handwritten volumes of memorable quotations tucked away on shelves, in closets, and atop a large, oak, library writing desk. Mariah’s first novel, Love and Other Illusions, was nominated in 2012 by the Library of Virginia for best in Literary Fiction. Sister Sorrow, Sister Joy, her second work of fiction, has also been nominated for best in Literary Fiction in 2019. She lives in Richmond, Virginia.
