Robyn Weintraub, of Rye Brook, N.Y., is active in local politics and the League of Women Voters. She started solving crosswords 12 years ago. After a few months, she bought some crossword software as a birthday gift for herself and has been constructing ever since.

This is her 35th puzzle for The Times. Robyn's specialty is themeless ones (like this), with colorful, conversational entries and very little obscurity or junk. Oh, and she loves twisty clues. (You've been warned.)
