Hi! Welcome to my website!

I'm an essayist and feature writer. You'll find my byline in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Boston Globe Magazine, Salon, The Daily News, Newsday, Ozy, Weekly Humorist, Narratively, Next Avenue, Purple Clover, and elsewhere. Check my events page to see me at my next reading or storytelling event. Follow me on FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn for updates on my latest project, a nostalgic and humorous memoir-in-progress that takes readers back to 1970s Rockaway NYC, when I was an ordinary teenage girl with an unlikely dream — to be a drummer in a rock-n-roll band.

As an award-winning custom content provider, speechwriter, and ghostwriter, I help organizations communicate to their target audience clearly, creatively, and concisely. I deliver first-rate writing so clean and tight you can bounce a quarter off it. But don’t just take my word for it; see what my clients say about me.

I belong to ASJA (American Society of Journalists and Authors), the nation's only professional organization for independent nonfiction writers. Check out my writing awards and articles in which I’m quoted.

A born-and-bred New Yorker who’s lived in three of five boroughs, I’m happy to make my home in Manhattan and to be the lucky mom of two delightful young adults.

Thanks for stopping by. Click around and feel free to drop me a line so I can get to know you, too.

 P.S. If you’re looking for the Robin Bernstein who’s a professor at Harvard, that’s not me but you can find her here. If you want the Robin Bernstein who used to be a U.S. diplomat, that's not me either but I wrote about her!
