Robin L. Cole is a quirky New Jersey based indie fantasy author and tarot creator who likes to game, cook, read tarot cards, and play with makeup when she is not writing. She writes the dark and snarky, emotionally-driven urban fantasy series The Warding. “Iron” was her first full-length publication, and its sequel, “Faster,” was released in fall of 2016. She has also written “First Hunt,” the first of many short stories set in the Warding world. She is at work on the next full length book in the series, “The Last Dance,” and hopes to release it soon.
On the tarot end of the spectrum, she not only reads the cards–but creates them as well! Her first deck, The Beautiful Rebellion Tarot Deck, was an independently published deck featuring the romantic, medieval imagery of masters such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais, Edmund Blair Leighton, John Collier, John William Waterhouse, and more. The second deck, Emerging from Darkness: A Tarot Deck for Shadow Work, and successfully Kickstarted in February 2020!
Both The Beautiful Rebellion Tarot and Emerging from Darkness: A Tarot Deck for Shadow Work are currently sold out and not in production. She does intend to release future editions, and would have liked to have seen them out by now, but delays have occurred due to the pandemic affecting printing and shipping times. No date it set for re-releases at this time. Check back on her social media for updates, or join her mailing list to be notified when another print run is set!
Her latest tarot endeavor, an oracle deck dedicated to The Morrigan is currently in the works, and she hopes the state of the world will improve so that it can be produced in 2022!
