As we announced last week, Vinspire has acquired the rights to the novelization of Robin Dunne’s script, Christmas on Mistletoe Lake. Robin will also be penning the novel, and we want to introduce you to our newest author!

Robin’s acting career began in 1998, when he landed a role in the John Woo produced blockbuster The Big Hit opposite Mark Wahlberg and Lou Diamond Phillips.

His television work includes roles on Manchester Prep, Dawson’s Creek, CSI Miami, NCIS, Dead Like Me, Defiance, and the Netflix series October Faction, as well a lead roles in the television films Sound of Christmas, Real Murders: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery, and On The Twelfth Day of Christmas, the latter of which he also co-wrote.

In 2008, Robin landed the starring role in the SyFy Channel’s hit series Sanctuary that ran for four seasons. He also directed on the series, which launched his career as a writer/director. To date, Robin has also written and directed the feature films A.R.C.H.I.E and A.R.C.H.I.E 2 (both featuring the voice of Michael J.
