What I Write

My writing is personable. I write from experience. You'll feel like we're having a conversation. It's great when someone "gets it" so whether you perceived a big sis talk and tough love, or a high five and a hug, it's coming from a real place.


I write primarily in the in-between and expose the fine print. I deliver writing that is edgy and unexpected. What you get from me is writing that is transformative, empowering and can be used to bless you and your life right where you are.


I write what I know and have experienced, not from a victim mentality, but a victor mentality. My writing is the by-product of resiliency. I am not my yesterday. I write from a place of victory. It is my hope that when the last word is read, readers have resonated with book leaving better than before the first chapter with clarity and composure.


Woman Reading Book at Home

"When I came across “Discover Your Signature Fragrance In Christ: A 31 Day Bible Study," I did not know what to expect; but after reading the first five sections in five days, I felt so connected to the book, and I couldn't put it down!"

Kibi W.

"With wit and comedy, ...the author’s charisma... is captivating with relatable connotations...Robin T. Smith has a distinct ability to capture an audience."

Julia Davis

What readers are saying

"I not only found it to be so detailed but with great grace and authority to help others. I'm a guy, but the principles can apply to anyone."

Dennis Perkins

"The author speaks from the heart and writes in a way that makes me sense she would be wonderful to hear speak in person."

Kelly S.

"...wry humor and straight forward commentary, it will lift the spirit with its uniqueness...The way Ms. Smith used the uthenism and history of perfume and its uses to strenghtening your faith, was ingenous."
