Tagline: Love and danger intertwine…
It’s called El Toque de la Luna—The Touch of the Moon. At least that’s how nineteen-year-old Gabby’s older sister, Esperanza, refers to the magical powers she inherited from their Mayan ancestors. Esperanza says women with El Toque weave magic into their knitting, creating tapestries capable of saving—or devastating—the world. Gabby thinks Esperanza is more like touched in the head—until a man dressed like a candy corn arrives at their Seattle home on Halloween. But “Mr. C” is far from sweet…
Soon, Gabby and her almost-more-than-friend, Frank, find themselves spirited away to a demon ball, complete with shape shifters—and on a mission to destroy Esperanza’s tapestries before they cause an apocalyptic disaster… And before it’s too late to confess their true feelings for each other.

A short interview with Erin.
What do you do when you are not writing?
I spend a lot of time reading—something I’ve loved to do my entire life, ever since my mother started reading to me when I was little. After that, I can be found kayaking, hiking, biking, and skiing, depending on the season. And I also love to knit, which partially inspired my novella, Blood Stitches, about a family that can knit magic.
Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?
Frank L. Baum’s Wizard of Oz series introduced me to novels, as well as fantasies. I spent many, many happy hours in grade school devouring the series. I partially credit him for giving me a lifelong fascination with writing and reading.
Enough with the serious stuff… if you had a superpower, what would it be?
That’s easy—flying, without a doubt.
Where is one place you want to visit that you haven’t been before?
I would love to visit New Zealand. It’s the one destination that both my husband and I want to see.
