Author Erin Dealey is a K-12 Language Arts/ theater teacher, former Co-RA for SCBWI CA North/Central, and motivational speaker. Erin's original career goal was Olympic Gold Medal tetherball player. When that didn't pan out, she became a teacher, theater director, actor, mom, and author―and now welcomes any opportunity to visit schools around the world. A poster on her wall reads: "You can't scare me--I'm a teacher!" She LOVES motivating kids to read and write.
In her spare time, she writes screenplays and a weekly #kidlit blog. Or she might be at a school visit, traveling with her husband, or playing with a certain tennis-ball-obsessed dog.
