aboutI am a copywriter & novelist born & raised & living in Philadelphia but always, desperately wishing for Paris. Really. If I’m not in Paris, or planning a trip to Paris, or editing photos from my last trip to Paris, I’m wandering Google Maps and crying into a mug of Mariage Frères tea with the Amelie soundtrack playing in the background.

You only think I’m kidding.

I started this blog in 2011 during a bout of unemployment, after graduating with a B.A. in Photojournalism, a degree that combined my two greatest passions but which proved nearly unemployable.

I’m a born writer, and I’ve been blogging in some form for the better part of 15 years. I just finished my first novel about (surprise!) an art heist in Paris. I’ve written for France Property Magazine and Museumist and The Paris Collection. By day, I am a copywriter at America’s oldest auction house.

In April of 2014 I moved to Paris. You can read all about that here. I’ve since moved home but still manage to find my way back to the City of Light with a regularity that borders on indulgent.

I’m Erin. I like / want / need a lot of things. I’m glad you’re here.
