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, and the sequel I am working on now.

I have recently completed a historical mystery, entitled Summer Smoke.  An early version of this was a finalist in the Freddie Award for Writing Excellence, sponsored by the Florida Chapter of Mystery Writers of America. It is a finalist for the Killer Nashville Claymore Award 2019.

I am a member of Crime Writers of Canada ,  Sisters in Crime – Canada West, the Short Mystery Fiction Society, and the Historical Novel Society.

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.
