Robinson shines best at creating and developing realistic, believable characters and playing them against each other like a master puppeteer.
David Myles Robinson has always had a passion for writing. During the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, while in college, Robinson worked as a free-lance writer for several magazines and was a staff writer for a weekly minority newspaper in Pasadena, California, called The Pasadena Eagle. However, as he himself admits, upon graduating from San Francisco State University, he decided against the ‘starving writer’ route and went to law school, at the University of San Francisco School of Law. It was there that he met his wife, Marcia Waldorf. After graduating from law school in 1975, the two moved to Honolulu, Hawaii and began practicing law. Robinson became a trial lawyer, specializing in personal injury and workers’ compensation law. Waldorf started at the Public Defender’s office and eventually became a District Court and ultimately a Circuit Court judge.
Upon retiring in 2010, Robinson completed his first novel, Unplayable Lie, which was published by BluewaterPress LLC, in 2010. His second novel, Tropical Lies, was published in 2014 and is the first of the Pancho McMartin legal thrillers, set in Honolulu, HI. Robinson’s third novel (his second Pancho McMartin book), Tropical Judgments, was published in July, 2015, also by BluewaterPress LLC.
Robinson and Waldorf divided their time between Honolulu and their second home in Taos, NM for seven years before finally deciding to see what it’s like to be full-time mainlanders again. They now live in Taos, where Robinson can pursue his non-writing passions of golf, ski, and travel.

Son of Saigon
Hank and Norm were living the good life: two friends with plenty of money, homes in a lovely California retirement town, and no problems--except for the boredom that felt almost fatal. Then Mai came into the picture, the love of Hank's life during his CIA days in Saigon, desperately needing his help to save the son he'd never known he had. Boredom was over, as Hank and Norm hit the road, following the few clues Mai could give them in search of a man who desperately wants not to be found. What they find is a slew of lies and hidden truths, strange characters, improbable danger that has them fighting to survive, and the happy lesson that their lives are far from over.
The Pinochet Plot
The brutal CIA-backed Chilean dictator, Augusto Pinochet, was known to have political opponents assassinated, but when a young Will Muñoz found his father murdered in the study of their Santa Fe home, he had no idea it might have been the work of a Pinochet assassin. Thirty years later, when reading his mother’s suicide letter, Will learns of his mother’s suspicions that Pinochet had ordered the assassination of his father, a famous Chilean writer. But her suspicions don’t stop there, and Will finds himself in a quest to discover the truth about his father’s murder—and about his mother’s mental state. His journey takes him down thoroughly unexpected paths involving his step-father, the CIA, drug experimentation programs, and a conspiracy of domestic terrorism. THE PINOCHET PLOT is not just a story of a man seeking inner peace, it is a story of dark history doomed to repeat itself.
