A reader since age five, a writer since age seven, a published writer since 12 and a paid published writer since 19, Mike Robinson's work has been featured in publications here and abroad, including Storyteller, Northwoods Anthology, Wondrous Web Worlds Anthology, ClonePod.org, Aoife's Kiss, Midnight Times, Wash: The Journal of Otis College of Art & Design, and more. In early 2012 his novel Skunk Ape Semester debuted from Solstice Publishing and was a Science Fiction/Fantasy Finalist in the Next Generation Independent Book Awards.

A charter member of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society, Mike now helms the society's official magazine, Literary Landscapes, which publishes member work in the areas of short stories, poetry, book excerpts and nonfiction articles. Since founding a freelance editing business in 2010, he has worked extensively on memoirs, novels, screenplays and even epic poetry (neat that people still write that, huh?). As can be gleaned from the books sagging his shelves or from his own work, genre-wise his tastes run the gamut. However, he is most at home in speculative fiction, the umbrella term for science fiction, fantasy (preferably urban or paranormal) and horror.
