About the Author:

Laurie McRobert was an athletic teenager, engaging in ski-racing and ski-jumping with enthusiasm. She married at age twenty-one and had four children while working as a successful model.

After a serious car accident, modeling became impossible, so McRobert turned her attention to more passive, intellectual interests. She received a PhD in philosophy of religion from McGill University in 1986, where she lectured in the department of philosophy.

McRobert has written books on diverse subjects, including Char Davis's Immersive Virtual Art and the Essence of Spatiality, Appearances: Genetic Mythology and Cosmic Instincts, and Emil Fackenheim's Quest: from Philosophy to Prophetic Theology. Surviving Life: A Memoir is a very different, deeply personal book compared to her previous works.
