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 in 2020.
On the tarot end of the spectrum, she not only reads the cards–but creates them as well! She considers herself to be he curator of The Beautiful Rebellion Tarot Deck, 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 Beautiful Rebellion Tarot sold out in under a year, and she hopes to bring out a new edition in fall of 2020!
Her latest tarot endeavor, Emerging from Darkness: A Shadow Work Tarot Deck, was successfully funded on Kickstarter, with the first edition going to over 300 backers by May 2020! Plans for a future edition for those who missed out on the campaign are already in the works.
