Profile Picture2 

I’m a fiction writer and blogger from Kentucky. I’m a weekend warrior in prose. I love to write at night in my pajamas, with my sweet lil doggie curled up by my feet. I hope (*crosses fingers*) to land a literary agent and sell a book within the next few years. I love to read and discuss all things related to writing, reading, agents, publishing, YA, and the craft. I also love art, photography, pop culture, indie music, and the many wonders of Google. I’ve got an awesome husband, two adorable children, and a darlin’ lil chiweenie!

Le Chiweenie.

I love modern spin-offs of the classics and creative modern fantasies. I would live at Hogwarts if I could.

The Hogwarts sorting quiz told me I was a Gryffindor.

Little known fact about me:  I’ve never mastered the art of opening a milk carton (you know the kind –glued together top that you have to invert to form a pour spout).  It’s a sad and embarrassing handicap I’ve endured since childhood.

See? Frankly, it’s ridiculous.

  1. Oh…..ditto. I so fantasize about the working from home in pajamas writing fiction all day. Sign me up! Great blog by the way, and thanks for checking us out at the Restless Writers site. Good luck with getting an agent, patience and persistence :-)

  2. Erin, when you comment on another blog, and you click on your name, it does not bring you back here to your blog. I had to go search fro you. You should get that fixes s all raod lead back to you easily.

    • Gah! I need to fix that. I thought I had the link up on my Gravatar. I wonder where the link on my name comes from…. Off to figure it out.

      Thanks Jennifer!!

  3. Hi Erin, I was thrilled to find someone else from the wilds of the interior here. It seems most writers live on one of the coasts. (I’m including the Great Lakes as a coastline here.) I’m even further from civilization though. I live in Madisonville, about 90 miles Northeast of Paducah. I have that “work from home in my pj’s” life and it’s all roses. Just watch out for the thorns hidden behind the blossoms. ;~) I’d be happy to join you in Potterland.

  11. Erin, this site is jumping with YA life and enthusiasm. Thanks for leading me to it! You might be interested in connecting with Women Writing for (a) Change in Cincinnati, OH. They do retreats and workshops and are an all-around neat group of writing women in all genres. Be sure to mention that I sent you. They are my roots for the work I do in Vermont and beyond.

    • Awesome! Thanks for the connection, Sarah. It’d be nice to have a supportive group of women writers to bounce things off of, and Cinci’s not that far from here. :)

  13. Fabulous blog! It’s great to “meet” you, Writerlious! I’m an author myself; I’ve managed to get an academic book published (coming out next fall!!) but I’m still trying to break into that true love of fiction.

  14. I’m embarrassed to ask, but did I ever invite you to come by Goodreads and see the anthology my group and I are working on? We still got open spots and always love fresh perspectives… :)

  15. I still can’t open those mild cartons! Sitting here in my PJs because I';m off work today and doing agent research. Back to work on Monday though. I’m trying to force myself out of my writer’s box and check out some new blogs instead of the four I’ve read for the last several years. Glad to find yours.

  16. Hi Erin. Have not talked to you lately. I was writing a post a few days ago and I remembered you. I wrote about dystopian society themes. It seems to have infected the Superman enterprise.
