BIO: Robin Simons is the author of nine works of nonfiction, most recently, Test Drive Your Dream Job; A Step by Step Guide to Finding or Creating the Work You Love, co-authored with Brian Kurth (Grand Central Publishing, 2008). Test Drive introduces the concept of the “vocation vacation,” a period of working with a mentor in the career of your dreams before leaving your current job. Topics covered include how to find a mentor and how to smoothly transition into a new career. Simon also co-authored Together On Top of the World: The Remarkable Story of the First Couple to Climb the Fabled Seven Summits (written with Phil and Susan Ershler), describing the journey of a couple conquering the famous summits as well as fighting a life-threatening illness.
