Erin came to writing quite late, and by way of her first love, theater. Starting graduate school in the mid-1980’s the available choices were business administration or creative writing – she chose writing by default, and embarked on a second career as a freelance arts journalist and theater critic. Throughout the 1980’s, her work appeared in print in the Saint Paul Pioneer Press, Star and Tribune and Minnesota Monthly.
While visiting Ireland one summer, Erin heard an intriguing tale about a beautiful red haired girl whose perfectly preserved head was discovered in a desolate Irish bog. That true story was the inspiration for her first debut novel, “Haunted Ground”, the first in a planned series of crime novels set mostly in Ireland, revolving around archaeology, forensics, history, traditional music and folklore.
This is Erin's third tour to Ireland with Celtic Journeys.
