About The Author

Edna Robinson (1921–1990) was an author and copywriter, who wrote the famous Oreo cookie lyrics “A kid’ll eat the middle of an Oreo first” and such lines as “Navigators of the world since it was flat.” Her short story, “The Trouble with the Truth,” was first published in the 1959 edition of the New World Writing series and selected as one of the “most exciting and original” stories of its time by the editors. The story has now been expanded into a novel of the same name, edited by her daughter Betsy. For more information, go to BetsyRobinson-writer.com.
