Erin Casey graduated from Cornell College in 2009 with degrees in English and Secondary Education.
She attended the Denver Publishing Institute in 2009 and has been a recruiter ever since. She is the Communications and Student Relationships Manager at The Iowa Writers’ House and one of two Directors of The Writers’ Rooms, a non-profit corporation that focuses on creating a free, safe environment for writers no matter their experience, gender, background, and income. Just like in her book, community is very important to her. An advocate for mental health, Erin’s written and published several articles on the Mighty, specifically about anxiety and depression. She’s also a devoted bird mom. When not volunteering and working, she’s writing LGBT/urban/medieval YA fantasy and sharing her literary journey on Instagram and Twitter. One of these days, she might actually get some sleep.
