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 Circle, a political fantasy trilogy, the fantasy thriller Blood and Moonlight, and a secret project for publication in 2023. She moved away from the Tidewater area in 2017 due to her husband’s military duty but continues to teach Muse classes remotely.
