Chuck and Debbie Robinson have been interested in seashells and the seashore since childhood. They both grew up on the New Jersey shore and together they have been combing beaches since 1984. The Robinsons have searched for seashells on United States East Coast beaches from Florida to Maine. They have also been shelling in California, Canada, Bermuda, St. Martin, Hawaii, the United States Virgin Islands at St. Thomas and St. John, and in the Bahamas. The Robinsons began their writing careers with the first edition of The Art of Shelling: A complete guide to finding shells and other beach collectibles at shelling locations from Florida to Maine published in 1995. Their children's book Treasure For Our Sand Castle was published in 1997. They lecture extensively, presenting to schools, libraries, reading conferences, community organizations, and nature groups.
