Meet Our Readers: Eden Robins

            

In the grand tradition of underemployed artists, Eden 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 has published some things in some places, but not enough things or enough places for you to have noticed.

She is co-founder and co-editor of the semiprozine Brain Harvest, has a novel that's going to be done soon, goddammit, and is currently learning kung fu and the ukulele.
