Erin McCrea

Author Bio:

After graduating university (many years ago) with a BA in English, Erin moved around from South Korea to various places in Saskatchewan, to Alberta, until she finally settled down in Saskatoon for a Creative Writing job at a local radio station. Shortly after she settled down even more with a man, house, and dog. In 2016 she added a baby boy to the mix. After her son was born, Erin became a Stay at Home Writing Mom. Lately, you can find Erin always searching for adventures, writing, crafting (not always well), playing (or arguing) with a kid, playing (or arguing) with a big dog, or drinking a glass of wine.
