In the grand tradition of underemployed artists, Eden M. Robins has been: a singing waitress, a dildo salesman, a dental assistant, an abortion clinic receptionist, a blowjob instructor, a travel writer, a pelvic model, and a Swahili teacher. She wrote a novel that is currently in the "death rattle" stage of edits and is co-founder and co-editor of the semiprozine Brain Harvest.
Eden has published some things in some places, but not enough things or enough places for you to have noticed... however, you may remember her from the blizzard edition of Tuesday Funk, which none of you showed up to.
