  • In 2017, Erin was the Nonfiction Section Editor for Booth Literary Magazine.
  • Along with food writing, she is a ghostwriter of nonfiction books.
  • She is obsessed with historical recipes from World Wars I and II and how rationing changed the way people cooked.


Erin has been a professional writer for several years, working mostly in the legal field. She was an adjunct English professor at a local community college for one year before following her dream of writing books full-time. She loves helping people break free from their fears of writing and encouraging them to tell their stories. When she was studying abroad in France as an undergrad, she knew she would grow up to be a writer someday. She believes that the food we cook and consume tells stories as valuable as those told with the written word.


Erin has a bachelor's degree in French and international studies and a master's degree in creative nonfiction from Butler University.
