Erin was raised in the hills of Virginia, exploring abandoned houses and reading the scariest books she could find. She learned to imagine the best and worst of life in those years. That imagination grew as she became a voracious reader. After marrying so young it would make a great romance novel but too young for real life, she has enjoyed an exciting life with her hubby and best friend. They have five children who are almost too old to believe and a couple grandkids.
