Hi! I’m Robin Pawlak.

I was a teacher for 31 years in Red Deer, Alberta (Canada). I had boatloads of fun with my students, but three decades is a long time, so I decided to retire to something a little quieter. Nowadays, I spend most of my time in my office, making stuff up and muttering to myself. Some say this is a sure sign that all that time with children drove me mad. This may be true. But if one writes his imaginings down, he can call himself an author, which is a somewhat more respectable title than lunatic.

Space Cadets is my first novel. Its sequel is scheduled for release in the fall of 2021.

What’s New?


Space Cadets is getting an overhaul! Since the pandemic delayed the release of book two until next fall anyway, I decided to go back to the original and apply everything I learned writing the sequel. The revised edition will be released in the early spring (exact date TBA) with a brand new cover by the remarkably talented Kylie Kornelson. I’m excited!
