Errin Stevens

Why are you THE Next Favorite Author?
You’ll walk away from Updrift feeling like you’ve eaten something delicious; and you’ll crave Breakwater!
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I remember pretty much always wanting to write… I think I attempted my first story when I was nine and it was so bad, even young childish me knew it. I literally burned it. I read fiction then and now like I breathe, which is to say constantly; and it was more than just a pastime, has always felt more visceral and necessary to me than that.
I think incessant reading wired me up strangely, too, meaning I constructed a kind of narrative filter through which I apprehend life’s experiences. And view reality. I’m always working on how I would express in words what I see happening around me. But I didn’t give myself permission to take a serious run at storytelling until five years ago. I think I was able to write Updrift because I loved the premise, and because the genre felt approachable to me.
About the Author
Errin Stevens writes paranormal suspense/romance from her home in Minnesota, where she lives with her husband and son. When not wrestling with unruly narrative – or reading everything from mythology to contemporary romance to literary novels – you’ll find her swooning over seed catalogs (winter), or digging in the garden (the other three days of the year). Visit her blog site at http://errinstevens.com for release updates and random essays on writing and mothering.
