Erin McCalla grew up in Westerville, Ohio and was an avid reader of The Baby-sitters Club series. (While she likened herself to Dawn, in reality, she was probably more of a combination of Kristy and Mary Ann.) Now, Erin's favorite novels are To Kill a Mockingbird, The Sun Also Rises, The Book Thief, and A Prayer for Owen Meany. She is also a fan of David Sedaris, and never misses anything he writes.
Erin graduated from Miami University where she studied journalism and creative writing. Since then, she has worked as a writer and editor in educational publishing and niche media, and as a consultant for independent authors. She currently lives in Columbus, Ohio and loves to read books with her favorite dreamers: Finn and Layne.
