My name is Robyn Echols. Zina Abbott is the pen I use for my historical novels. I’m a member of Women Writing the West and Western Writers of America. I currently live with my husband in California’s central valley near the “Gateway to Yosemite.”

I love to read, quilt, work with digital images on my photo editing program, and work on my own family history.

I am a blogger. In addition to my own blog, I blog for several group blogs including the Sweet Americana Sweethearts blog, which I started and administer.

10 Fun Facts About Myself

  1. I’m not a fun person—I tend to be serious.

  2. I’ll go to an organizational meeting with a speaker or class before I’ll go to a social party.

  3. I’m analytical and sometimes suffer from “analysis paralysis.”

  4. I like to quilt rather than sew garments because l like doing the math to create new block designs.

  5. The other fun part of quilting for me is to put together colors and fabric patterns I don’t think will look good together – but in the end, they do!

  6. I like photography, but I’m not a professional. Thank goodness for digital cameras and photo-editing programs.

  7. I love to create digital memes, banners and blog post headers.

  8. I belong to my county genealogical society.

  9. My idea of camping is staying in a fifth wheel or a trailer—with internet access.

  10. I’d rather be reading.
