At the age of eighteen, Erin shocked her parents and friends when she declared she'd become a scientist so she could later become a writer. After all she got a 110% in high school biology, so she must have known what she was doing. She also knew that in science, especially when working on research drugs, bringing your work home could actually be punishable by law. This left lots of time to work on her novel after work.
Erin is the author of the Luciana series (American Girl, Girl of the Year 2018), The Friendship Experiment (HMH), and the forthcoming middle grade novel, Survivor Girl (Clarion, Summer 2019).
Erin grew up in Pennsylvania and now lives in Virginia with her own two little mad scientists, a puppy named Beaker, a bunny that thinks he's a cat, and a husband that regularly puts himself in danger with all of his extreme sports. She's represented by Marie Lamba of the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.
