Erin Beaty

Erin Beaty is a native of Indianapolis, IN and a US Naval Academy graduate, studying (of all things) aerospace engineering. Now she writes young adult novels with Macmillan, including The Traitor’s Kiss, The Traitor’s Ruin, and The Traitor’s Kingdom, and two more books scheduled for publication 2021 and 2022. While she moved away from the Tidewater area in 2017 due to her husband’s military duty, she is now able to teach Muse classes remotely! She looks forward to working with students again but asks everyone to be patient because she has five kids, writing deadlines, and also lives 13-14 hours ahead of the east coast.
