Robin MacArthur is the author of the novel, Heart Spring Mountain (2018), and Half Wild: Stories (winner of the 2017 PEN/New England Award). She grew up on the same farm her grandparents bought in 1950 and on which her parents later built their home. She received her B.A. from Brown University and an M.F.A. from Vermont College of Fine Arts. 

MacArthur married Ty Gibbons, a fellow Vermonter, who writes music for documentary films. The two formed the folk duo, Red Heart the Ticker, and issued a couple of albums. After living in Providence, New York, and Philadelphia, they decided that moving back to Vermont would spur their creative impulses. They built a cabin on their own, including milling their own logs. They've continued to expand it along with their growing family (now two children).

MacArthur is also the editor of Contemporary Vermont Fiction: An Anthology. She has received  grants from the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. (Adapted from the author's website and from Design Sponge. Retrieved 3/5/2018.)
