True Tales of Air Disasters and the People Who Survived Them
Robin Suerig Holleran is a full-time freelance writer with 20 years experience. For most of her life, Robin had deluded herself that statistically she was one of the safest people to fly with after her step-grandfather was killed in a PanAm accident in Brazil. But her father and brother also survived two separate crashes! She won Honorable Mention at the 75th Writer’s Digest Writing Competition for a personal essay about the plane crash entitled “Did you think you were going to die?”
Robin is a single mother with three kids in college, a dog, two cats, one lizard and a lot of energy.
