About Robynn Gabel

Robynn Gabel had two dreams growing up, writing books and riding horses. In her first two books, she fulfilled them both by publishing her award-winning story about her time with Elvis, a champion Missouri Fox Trotter. However, her continual pursuit of adventure pushed her off into the deeper waters of writing a historical romance novel taking place in the backdrop of the Viking Age.

An adventurer at heart herself she has always been an avid traveler and has held career positions in a variety of fields but Robynn’s calling to write has never wavered earning her prestigious literary awards. In her latest book, Norse Hearts, she draws from a rich treasure trove of experiences and painstaking research to provide not only a historically authentic tale but one with true emotional power only she can bring. 

When she is not writing she lives life with her husband Mark in the wind-swept land of Wyoming riding Missouri Fox Trotters, and loving a large herd of children and grandchildren.

  1. Robyn – wanted to say Hi – I like the synchronistic events surrounding your start into writing beginning with your mother’s suggestion. I like how it’s working out for you. Sounds like we might be fellow Coloradoans.

  2. Hi Robyn – Yeah! We are fellow Coloradoans. We’re up in the mountains in Bailey and absolutely love it. We’ve lived up here for over 30 years and wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. You’re welcome for the comments and I’m happy to connect with a Rocky Mountain fan. 🙂

  3. It’s nice you still have connections with your son and his family out here. It sounded like you were still in Arvada. Where ever we land home is where the heart is. Hope you’re enjoying your weekend — up here at 8500′ elevations we’re bracing for some winter-type weather. It’s that time of year.

  4. Nice to meet you Robynn! I wish you the best of luck in your writing career!
    And I live in Colorado, too! How neat! You’re the second person I’ve met on wordpress that lives here! Glad to know there are more writers so close to home!

    1. Hi Briana,
      Nice to meet you as well. What part of Colorado do you live in? I actually live in Wyoming currently, though I grew up in Colorado. Ever hear of Wheatridge? I live in Lander, WY up against the Wind River mountains. I miss most the Christmas lights at the Civic Center in Denver the most. I’m so amazed at the growth of Denver. I remember when Thornton was just fields. Looking forward to reading your blogs. Robynn

      1. Hi Robynn,
        I live near Cortez. And I have heard of Wheatridge! I’ve also heard of Lander, though I’ve never been to either place. I went to Denver last fall, and was amazed at how much bigger it was than in 2003.
        How the weather is nice for you up there!
        Yours truly,

  5. You can’t go wrong with Dr. Seuss! Unfortunately for me, I didn’t get to enjoy Dr seuss until my college days. After reading many classics and Tolkien. I started with The Cat in the Hat…and graduated with Green Eggs and Ham. 😉

  6. Hi Robynn,

    Months ago we had chatted on one of your blog posts about indie writers and working hard to still produce a quality piece of work. You had mentioned for me to let you know when I published and that time is finally here! Would love to connect with you, and don’t want to do any of my own horn tooting here. You can e-mail me: LauraBrownAuthor at gmail dot com.
