Erin grew up in Whitby, Ontario, but didn't really notice it at the time because she was busy reading. She studied English at McMaster University, worked as a technical writer, and somewhere along the line fell into the Writing for Children workshop at Mabel's Fables in Toronto. She has never looked back.
Erin lives in Whitby with her wonderful husband and daughter, nearly three kilometres from the house she grew up in. And she still spends as much time as possible reading.
