Robin Estridge, a.k.a. Robin York and Philip Loraine, was a British author of suspense fiction and screenwriter.

His real name was Robin Estridge, but he mostly published novels under the name of Robin York and Philip Loraine. Today, he has been somewhat forgotten by many readers as well as collectors of crime fiction. Sea Change (1982) is one of his best known novels.

An introductory note to And to My Beloved Husband written under the pseudonym Philip Loraine Ace Books, N.Y., the following information is given about the author:

"Philip Loraine has published a number of top-notch suspense novels in the United States, and under his real name has written other books, as well as film and television scripts."

Loraine has also been a sailor in the Royal Navy, a theatrical designer, a dishwasher in Paris, a journalist and a tubercular patient. Years ago he resided in Corsica, but he has also spent five years in the United States, as well as living in Italy, Yugoslavia, Spain and, as seldom as possible, his native England. He liked writing, peace and quiet, sunshine and new places. He disliked bad food, bad manners, people who think of themselves as intellectual, bigotry, politics and politicians.
