Erin Bowman used to tell stories visually as a web designer. Now a full-time writer, she relies solely on words. She lives in New Hampshire with her family, and when not writing she can often be found hiking, commenting on good typography, and obsessing over all things Harry Potter. Erin is the author of Contagion and its sequel, Immunity, the Taken trilogy, Vengeance Road, and Retribution Rails. You can visit her online at www.embowman.com.
