Robin Maxwell

"I may look like your grandmother...but I am The Destroyer of Worlds!" Historian, Los Angeles Times and Amazon #1 bestselling novelist, screenwriter, podcaster and Huffington Post blogger, Robin Maxwell has been obsessed with aliens since her first encounter with a UFO in New Jersey at the age of two. Since then, her passion for extraterrestrial and inter-dimensional lifeforms has expanded exponentially to include Atlantis and antediluvian civilizations throughout the world, genetic intervention with our species, and “Planet X.” ​ Having veered back to earth to make a name for herself within the historical fiction genre, Robin has won multiple awards with her 9 critically acclaimed, best-selling books and audiobooks. Her debut novel, "The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn," is now in its 26th printing. Called ‘one of the Queens of Historical Fiction,' Maxwell’s titles include "The Wild Irish" "The Queen’s Bastard" "Signora Da Vinci” and "Mademoiselle Boleyn" and have been translated into 16 languages. They're sold at the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace and the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Published in 2012's “Tarzan Centennial Year," JANE: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan, received the enthusiastic endorsement of the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs and Dr. Jane Goodall. Maxwell, the only female in 100 years permitted to write a Tarzan classic, spoke on a panel — “The Naked Truth About Tarzan and Jane" — at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. JANE has been a clue on “Jeopardy” not once, but twice. Returning to her original and abiding obsession for science fiction, Robin spent the last ten years researching and writing non-stop to finished the 5-novel GODS OF ATLANTOS Saga, set on Erthe and Mars 12,000 years in the past. It is a deeply personal work, what Maxwell considers her magnum opus. Her inspiration, main historical source and "story partner" is the Greek philosopher Plato. Two of his most famous dialogues, "Timaeus" and "Critias," form the foundation for her expansive re-imagining of our culture's most beloved yet misunderstood story. With the publication of the Saga, Maxwell has created an all new genre - "Prehistorical-Science Fiction.” Introduced by fellow Plato apologist Graham Hancock, she lectured at the 2016 “Contact in the Desert Convention" on the subject of First Contact and Lost Civilizations. She lives with her husband of 40 years, yogi Max Thomas, on their wildlife sanctuary in the Mojave Desert. Visit her at and
