CORRIDOR is a fast-paced young adult action-adventure and will keep you hooked from the very first page.
"If you are a fan of the HUNGER GAMES or THE MAZE RUNNER you will love CORRIDOR!" -Aaron Patterson, bestselling author of SWEET DREAMS and AIREL
THE ONLY WAY OUT IS TO RUN.
On the eve of his seventeenth birthday, Troy Goggin finds himself inexplicably transported to an impossibly huge, miles-long structure called the Corridor. But what is the Corridor, and why was he brought to it?
It’s a place of mystery, wonder, and heart-stopping danger. It will test him and push him both mentally and physically. His only companion is the girl whose voice he hears inside his head, explaining the rules he must follow if he hopes to escape.
But there is much more to this extraordinary place than Troy could ever imagine. The Corridor’s true purpose — the biggest mystery of all — is revealed only to those who make it to the end.
"Robin Parrish is a keen-eyed, passionate pop cultural savant, whose writing is as incisive and insightful as it is entertaining." - Allan Heinberg, Executive Producer, Grey's Anatomy
Robin Parrish wants to take you on a ride.
A wild ride -- which is exactly what you're in for when you pick up one of his books. And he's adamant that it will never be the same kind of experience twice.
Robin's stories mix, mingle, and meld various genres together to create thoroughly original suspense/thrillers. His Dominion Trilogy, for example, mashed up superhero action, secret societies, ancient myths, and an apocalyptic setting to create an entirely new take on the classic "hero's journey." Offworld mixed science fiction and an end-of-the-world scenario with high-octane action. Nightmare, his 2010 novel, is a spine-tingling examination of the world of the paranormal, paired with can't-put-it-down mystery. He describes his 2011 novel, Vigilante, as a story about a man who sets out to do something that no one has ever done before.
Always pushing the envelope, ever on the edge of where modern storytelling is going, Robin Parrish will gladly and unapologetically tell you that he's an entertainer, a weaver of stories that ignite the mind and delight the heart. Defying labels and refusing pigeonholes, his imagination is fueled by the possibilities of asking "What if...?", and as anyone who's read his work knows, he has a very big imagination. Readers will be happy to know that he has an endless supply of wild stories with enormous scope, that are still yet to come.
As a journalist, Robin has worked for About.com, CMCentral.com (RIP), INFUZEmag.com (also RIP), PopCultureGeek.com, b5media, SplashPress Media, and many more. His writing has been printed in numerous magazines and newspapers.
His influences as a novelist range from television and film storytellers like Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams, to masters of the modern myth like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Akin to Philip K. Dick's search for the meaning of identity, most of what Robin writes about boils down to his own ponderings and examinations of just what this thing we call "existence" really is.

moral dilemmas that the characters find themselves engaged in are
palpable; the setting of a faltering America seems almost too real… and
the final conclusion rushes to a crashing and unexpected crescendo.
Vigilante is a story well told that touches on themes worth thinking
about in this day and age."

cinematic, visual writing has again produced an action packed movie in
book form with strong similarities to comic book superheroes. His
characters show great depth as they struggle with moral and ethical
issues that could be torn from today's headlines… Parrish's strong
characterizations and insightful writing make [Vigilante] not one to

again, [with Nightmare], Robin Parrish proves he belongs in the ranks
with Frank Peretti and Mike Dellosso, telling a creepy story with a
powerful underlying purpose."

the tightly paced and plotted storyline, the excellent
characterizations and the attention to story details made [Nightmare]
one of my favorite reads of all time. In suspense fiction, it stands
easily next to Dean Koontz and Stephen King."

writes so cinematically [in Offworld], every scene comes to life. The
action rips across the pages, and the characters would make stars of the
actors in the roles. Parrish keeps the suspense taut by giving more
questions than answers and keeping the characters constantly on the run
for their lives. The chase scenes are phenomenal, especially Trisha's
leap with two jeeps across the sky into a skyscraper. On the screen,
it's the kind of scene that would earn a cheer of awe from the crowd, on
the page, it made my jaw drop and I wanted to share it with someone
