About the Author

Deborah Install has been writing fiction since childhood, submitting her first book to a publisher at the age of eight. Her love of writing persisted, leading to a number of jobs, including web journalism and her most recent role as copywriter at a design and marketing agency. A ROBOT IN THE GARDEN came about while caring for her new baby. She lives in Birmingham, UK, with her husband, toddler and affectionate but imperious cat.


"an inventive and utterly charming tale...heartwarming." - Booklist, STARRED Review
.".".a delightful romp and an emotional journey, both hilarious and poignant....[An] exceptionally charming novel..." - Shelf Awareness
"Put two or more characters in a car and send them on zany adventures with inevitable encounters with quirky locals and you've got one of my favorite sub-sub-sub genres: the road trip novel. It's the perfect vehicle (HAAA) for your protagonist to find themselves and solve life's big questions" - BookRiot
"[A] charming first novel... with characters that, whether they are carbon based or cybernetic, never fail to engage the readers' sympathy and win our hearts with their humanity." - Publishers Weekly
"Install's debut novel is quirky and witty, full of true human-and robot-emotion that will have readers both laughing and crying. This unusual cast of characters, including the robot Tang, come from all walks of life and set up situations that are interesting and thought-provoking. A Robot in the Garden is a breath of fresh air." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
