I'm so glad you've stopped in. Books have been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember, and have brought me much joy. Hardly a day goes by that I don't open one--yes, I still cherish everything that comes from holding a real book in my hands.
I write inspirational fiction, intended to uplift and encourage my readers. I believe this world is filled with more than enough heartbreak and sadness. My characters are total figments of my imagination, but I try to give them qualities--both good and bad--that I've seen in real people facing real struggles. And always, ALWAYS, I give them a happy ending. Perhaps not the one they were expecting, but the one that's best for them!
Writing is like breathing to Erin. Stories are running through her mind during most of her waking hours, and by the time she sits down at the computer, the words flow and time ceases to exist.
Erin was raised in Illinois and has lived in many places in the U.S., including on both coasts, but is a Midwest girl at heart. She spent many years as an educator from pre-school through college levels, and currently works in training and internal communications for a major global corporation.
When she’s not writing, Erin loves spending time with her children and grandchildren, and playing in the garden (which equates to mostly pulling weeds) at her central Iowa home. Her secret indulgence is plain M&Ms.
