My name is Erin Spock and writing is my joy. Courtly Pleasures, a Tudor era historical romance, was my first complete novel. It came out in eBook in December of 2017 and has received excellent reviews. Courtly Scandals came out on 3/19/18. 

Courtly Abandon was set for July 2018, but I had the rights reverted when Simon and Schuster closed Crimson Romance. While this was disappointing, I'm confident it will not be long before another publisher is interested in this title. For now, I'll just keep writing.

While my Elizabethan historical romances are fun and my primary focus, I have also dabbled in writing something darker. Possessing Karma is a supernatural romantic thriller. It is a ghost story set in modern day New Orleans that overlaps with the lives of a sadist but charming plantation owner and his quadroon mistress. Possessing Karma was available temporarily on Inkitt for two months. During that time it was a consistently trending book in both the romance and thriller genres. At the point I removed it, it had had over two thousand reads.  I look forward to sharing this title with interested publishers

I became fascinated with the Elizabethan era after my high school drama group attended a Renaissance faire. I received my  BA from CSU San Marcos with a major in History (I focused on the social history of the Renaissance). When I am not writing, I am a history and art teacher for middle grades at a local charter school. I no longer participate in Renaissance faires, but my costume experience there has evolved into making Irish solo dresses for my daughter's dance competitions.

I started writing supernatural a few years ago and found I loved it. So far I've dabbled in writing ghosts and elemental spirits. In real life I'm really, really creeped out by hauntings. In order to broaden my repertoire of vocabulary and setting I've been reading horrors and watching scary movies. Needless to say, I haven't been sleeping well.

I am a member of Romance Writers of America and would recommend this as a resource to any who wish to pursue writing romance professionally. It has been a supportive community of like minded writers and I would not be where I am without them.

I live in Southern California with my husband, two daughters, an elderly border collie named Portia 😞, and a lab-ish puppy named Lucy.
