Robin Bennett

  • 5 stars across 27 books
Robin Bennett has written several books for children under the 'nom de plume' RS Harding, and one on his life as an entrepreneur, Start up Smart. Aged 21 he was all set to become a cavalry officer and aged 21 and a half, he found himself working as an assistant grave digger in south London wondering where it all went wrong. He founded London Tutors aged 23 and since then has gone on to start and run over a dozen successful businesses, mainly in the translation industry. Robin has mentored a number of young people hoping to make a start in business and has spoken at conferences on fantasy literature. His first book for young adults, Picus the Thief, won the Writers News Indie published book of the year award in 2012.
