Robin Heid
Robin Heid is the author of Sport Death: A Computer Age Odyssey, the critically-acclaimed 1987 novel about aerospacecraft and artificial intelligence on which his principal screenplay The Magic Raven is based. Mr. Heid drew on his experience as a paratrooper, pilot, professional parachutist, investigative journalist and technical editor to craft a screenplay of such depth that it makes us wonder how the story will end for all of us, not just Jesse and Chuck.

Mr. Heid is also a strategic communications consultant whose current and past clients include foreign governments, film, television and live event producers, the international environmental group Greenpeace, and political candidates for national, state and local office. He was a Colorado candidate for U.S. Congress in 1988, governor in 1990, and in 1994 created and hosted the Denver radio talk show, For What It’s Worth.

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife Tamaki, 5-year-old daughter Siona, two desert tortoises and a pair of cats. He drives a Ford pickup and rides a Harley.
