Brooklyn-born Lori Robbins began dancing at age 16 and launched her professional career three years later. She studied modern dance at the Martha Graham School and ballet at the New York Conservatory of Dance. Robbins performed with a number of regional modern and ballet companies, including Ballet Hispanico, the Des Moines Ballet, and the St. Louis Concert Ballet. After ten very lean years as a dancer she attended Hunter College, graduating summa cum laude with a major in British Literature and a minor in Classics. She is now an English teacher in New Jersey. The mother of six, Robbins has vast experience with the homicidal tendencies that everyday life inspires.
Her most recent book, Murder in First Position, was published by Level Best Books and is available now-
Lesson Plan for Murder, the first book in her Master Class Mystery Series, was published by Barking Rain Press.
Two more books are in the works: Links to Murder, the second Master Class Mystery, and Murder in Second Position, a new series set in the world of professional ballet. Her new short story, “Accidents Happen” will appear in the 2021 annual Malice Domestic Anthology, Murder Most Diabolical.
