Tracing the blurred line between life and literature has taken David Robinson to places as far afield as west Kansas and the edge of the Kalahari. It's also taken him on journeys of discovery into the minds of some of the most gifted writers alive. This beautifully produced collection of essays and interviews is based on his articles in The Scotsman newspaper and is a record of those fascinating encounters—a book that starts in a couple of dozen other books and takes the reader on  the road to even more. If you've ever found yourself enthralled underneath the canvas of a book festival tent—or if you've only wished for the chance—In Cold Ink is the perfect recreation, taking you straight to your best-loved authors and helping you discover new favorites!

A retired hypnotherapist and adult education teacher with a one-megaton sense of humour, David Robinson is a Yorkshireman from the outskirts of Manchester, northwest England, where he lives with his wife and a crazy Jack Russell Terrier named Joe (because he looks like a Joe).He writes in several genres under different pseudonyms, but his mainstay is crime and mystery. He published several novels with different publishers until, in 2011, he turned to self-publishing on the Kindle, putting out 15 titles. In January 2012 Crooked Cat Publishing picked up the first of his popular Sanford 3rd Age Club Mysteries, The Filey Connection. More titles in the series are due in the near future.He also produces darker, edgier thrillers, such as The Handshaker and Voices; titles which are aimed exclusively at an adult audience and which question the perceptions of reality.In a more light-hearted mood again, he turns out the occasional sci-fi or paranormal adventure and he has also published some non-fiction.As at March, 2012, he is working on more of the Sanford 3rd Age Club Mysteries and a sequel to The Handshaker.Website and blog http://www.dwrob.comFacebook Author Page: handle: @DW
