Hi, I'm Erin

I write novels for young readers, working out of a garden shed in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.  (I'm actually from Omaha, Nebraska, but sadly I blew it up in one of my books. Oops.)

I have five novels, two books of poetry, and a fistful of awards, including the Governor General's Award for young people's literature, the CBC Canadian Literature Award for poetry, the TD Award for "most distinguished book of children's fiction" and the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year award for young adult books.

I have a new novel coming!  SIMON SORT OF SAYS is due out January 31, 2023.  


Two years after a tragedy saddled him with viral fame, twelve-year-old Simon O'Keeffe and his family have moved to Grin And Bear It, Nebraska—the only town in America where the internet is banned. Instead of talking about Simon, the astronomers who flock to GNB are busy listening for signs of life in space. And when Simon makes a friend who’s determined to give the scientists what they’re looking for, he’ll finally have the chance to spin a new story for the world to tell.  


From Disney Hyperion in the US and Scholastic Canada in Canada.  


I'm booking school visits for next Fall
