Hi! I'm Erin, I'm from the US, and I love to write. I've loved story-telling and all things involving my imagination ever since I can remember. My kindergarten teacher complained that I had too big of an imagination (who does that?!). I had to ask my mom what an imagination actually was. What I didn't realize was that I *lived* in an imagination world, and honestly, even though I'm in my 20s now I'm not sure I've ever left.
I started writing when I was 13 and in love with a boyband. I won't get into specifics but it was some really questionable stuff. I soon realized fictional characters were way, way better and wrote about them instead. I've been through some events in my life when I've put writing on hold for a while, but it's a passion I always come back to. It's a continuous love, a star which keeps shining in my (sometimes troubled) world that draws me back again and again.
Besides writing, I have a passion for history and enjoy learning about the medieval and ancient world. Lately I've been on a Plantagenets and Tudors kick, and have also just read a fantastic series by Kate Quinn set in ancient Rome. I'm a massive fan of costume dramas, and if I haven't watched one already it's probably on my Netflix list or I just can't find it (happens way too often, argh).
I'm a Christian, I lived in South Africa for nearly half a year, I want to travel the world and not just read about it, I spend way too much time looking at 360 photos on my VR headset, when I was little I wanted to be an Egyptologist, please don't talk to me if it's morning unless you bring me coffee (though I still may not respond).
I've met some really talented, kind and genuine people on here, and if you have time please visit them and read their stories:
Thank you for visiting (and hopefully checking out Stars of Varda!) - I hope you have a lovely day.
Lots of love,
