About Robin Gaby Fisher
Robin Gaby Fisher is the New York Times bestselling author of "After the Fire; A True Story of Friendship and Survival" and "The Boys of the Dark; A Story of Betrayal and Redemption in the Deep South. She is a two-time finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Feature Writing and a member of a Pulitzer Prize-winning team at The Star-Ledger. She teaches Journalism at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey.
Fisher's journalism career grew out of a lifelong curiousity about people
and their stories. Her grade school history teacher, Nicholas Picciano,
says today that when other girls in his class were reading Nancy Drew,
Fisher always had her nose in a biography. Today, reading continues to
be a source of great happiness for Fisher, who favors non-fiction and
memoirs. Favorite books include "Zelda" by Nancy Milford, "In
Cold Blood" by Truman Capote, "Remembering Denny" by Calvin
Trillin, and "Night" by Elie Wiesel.
Fisher is married to Loren Fisher, a photojournalist. They live in Somerset
County, New Jersey and Woodstock, Vermont. When she isn't reading or
writing, she loves spending time with her nieces and nephews and hiking
the mountains of Vermont with her Bernese Mountain dogs.
