Author Mastermind Robin Barefield’s Murder Over Kodiak has twists and turns aplenty; however, her coming of age as a mystery writer shows other twists and turns—some I’ve been a party to.


I served on the board of directors and president of Alaska Writers Guild for many years. Later, the conference committee invited me to conduct a workshop about publishing a book without a publisher. As an unknown, yet-to-be-discovered mystery author, Robin attended the workshop and asked me to review her Murder Over Kodiak manuscript.


Like in the movies, the publisher reads a portion of a budding author’s manuscript and is immediately taken by it. I knew the book was well written, and Robin, above all, was a storyteller extraordinary—and I hoped she’d allow Publication Consultants to be her publisher.


Robin Barefield lives in the wilderness on Alaska’s Kodiak Island, where she and her husband own a remote lodge. She’s well acquainted with wilderness dangers, floatplanes, wild weather, and how to get along using your own resources if left alone in the wilderness. She also has a master’s degree in fish and wildlife biology and is a wildlife-viewing and fishing guide. Her Alaska murder mystery books show her love and appreciation of the Alaska wilderness and her scientific background—she knows what she writes.


But I think you’d rather hear Robin’s story directly from her. So here’s where you’ll find her talking about her real-life adventure of becoming a published author,
