Erin K. Barnes is a writer living in Denver with her Velvet Elvis painting, husband, 20,000 vintage dresses, daughter, son, twenty packages of backup coffee so she will never ever run out, and a really old dog, in no particular order.

In between writing books, she makes a living by yelling about things she’s really excited about (otherwise known as publicity).

Her first published book is slated for May 2020 release: a quick-and-dirty guide to Colorado called Weekend Getaways from Denver (Countryman Press).
