You’re never too old to begin a literary career. At the age of 75 retired pastor Cy Robinson began writing his first novel. Not just a novel, but the first volume in a planned trilogy. He discusses the creation of The Half Chance – a story of a dead-end life blossoming through love, faith, and acceptance – as well as his efforts to find a publisher for his literary offspring.

Rev. Robinson held many jobs – photographer, apricot farmer, real estate agent – before receiving his degree from Bethany Bible College at age 60. He has served several congregations in California and founded his own nondenominational church.
