Works by Ron Robinson
Before he started publishing novels, Ron Robinson established himself as a playwright. He has had a dozen plays produced regionally and as far away as California, including Firebringer, Nation Invisible, Right-of-Way, Lifestyles and Poor Relations, and his most popular, Kitchen Dance, which was later put into print by the University of South Dakota Press. As a composer and lyricist, Robinson contributed musicals such as Windswept, Whatever Happened to Radio?, and Aces and Eights, chosen as an official production for the South Dakota Centennial. A supporter of the Center for Western Studies, Robinson has written and directed several productions for that organization's annual fund-raising event, including a short musical based on the era in which Sioux Falls was the divorce capital of the nation, A Night in Old Sioux Falls.
Thunder Dreamer was his first published novel, like Kitchen Dance published by USD Press. He has fashioned what he calls an "entertainment," Cats are from Saturn - Dogs are from Pluto, and he has contributed to a number of other books, including an anthology on caring, The Call to Care. His most recent novel is Diamond Trump.
