Welcome to Book Talk Radio Club!
Erin Thornton for the past 13 years has been a mom first. Now with six kids, she felt like she’d lost her own identity. She no longer had a first name and was always someone’s mom or her husband’s wife. It became very discouraging.
Erin has been telling stories since she was a kid. Her mom always told her to write her stories down, but she just rolled her eyes and moved on. As an adult, instead of reading a book for a bedtime story or on a long drive she would tell a made-up story to her kids. Keeping them sometimes captivated for hours. Some of them were amazing works of fiction and fantasy. Others were awful, and her kids still remember their insanity to this day. She wasn’t afraid to take the stories to their most abstract point just to get a laugh from her kids.
Instead of letting her identity crisis overtake her, last summer Erin decided to write a novel. A story that was for her, not for her kids.
With her days spent on 100 acres with chickens and kids that act like the chickens most days, Erin writes whenever she can get a spare moment. Between musical practices, sports, and just plain mom life to distract her she tries to get in her words for the day with Disney Princess movies in the background or while her youngest naps.
