About me

Merrilee Robson -Author photoWhen I was still a student, I was lucky enough to have the chance to form a non-profit housing co-operative with my neighbours. The ten years I lived there, and time spent as a volunteer and employee in the housing co-operative sector, showed me what a difference safe, affordable housing can make in people’s lives.

That is the basis of my novel, Murder is Uncooperative.

I wrote my first mystery novel in pencil at age eleven, but it’s taken me until now to write another. Murder is Uncooperative is the first in a planned series.

I’m currently at work on a sequel and I have recently completed a historical mystery, entitled Summer Smoke.  This was a finalist in the Freddie Award for Writing Excellence, sponsored by the Florida Chapter of Mystery Writers of America.

I am the Crime Writers of Canada regional representative for BC/Yukon/NWT, a member of Sisters in Crime – Canada West, and on the board of the Left Coast Crime convention association in Vancouver.

I live in Vancouver, with my husband and two incorrigible cats. My house is over a hundred years old and was first owned by a police officer.
