I'm Erin, a 25-year-old translator from the Netherlands, and I've been writing since I was 7. 

I'm a disabled lesbian, and most of my books feature disabled and/or queer characters. You can expect my books to be slow-burn romances.

In my ongoing novel, "Jessie & Elizabeth", Jessie Kawecki starts working as a nanny for single mother Elizabeth Canfield, taking care of her three young daughters. Closed-off and cold, Elizabeth is harder to handle than all of her kids together, and Jessie has no idea how long she can manage to put up with her.

My first completed novel, "Because You're Different", tells the story of June, a girl with cerebral palsy, who falls in love with her best friend Sam's older brother Nathan, but she wonders if anyone will ever love her back.
(This is a straight romance, written when comphet was still messing with my head).
