Robin Keisman Hathaway ’56
Robin Hathaway began writing at the age of 50. In three years, she produced three mystery novels, featuring cardiologist/amateur sleuth Dr. Andrew Fenimore, patterned after her cardiologist husband. After ten years of rejections, Hathaway finally broke through when her first Fenimore mystery, The Doctor Digs a Grave, won the St. Martin’s Press Malice Domestic Contest for Best Traditional Mystery and the Agatha Award. St. Martin’s published the book in 1999, and several more Dr. Fenimore mysteries followed. In 2003, Robin launched a new series beginning with Scarecrow, introducing Jo Banks, a young woman doctor, and its sequel, Satan’s Pony. Her latest book, The Doctor Rocks the Boat, published in the spring of 2006, saw the return of Dr. Fenimore. Hathaway, who divides her time between Philadelphia and New York City, is also the author of many short stories that have appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, and Death Knell.
