Erin Bowman grew up in rural Connecticut, where she spent most of her childhood penning tales. She studied web design (and minored in Creative Writing because she couldn’t stay away from stories) at the Rochester Institute of Technology. After several years working in advertising and designing websites for various brands, she moved from Boston to New Hampshire, where she now lives with her family and writes full-time.

When not writing, Bowman can often be found hiking, geeking out over good typography, and obsessing over all things Harry Potter. She drinks a lot of coffee, buys far too many books, and is not terribly skilled at writing about herself in the third person.

Bowman is the author of the Taken trilogy, Vengeance Road, Retribution Rails, and the newly released Contagion.

She applied the Page 69 Test to Contagion and reported the following:
Page 69 [at right; click to enlarge] is completely representative of Contagion. The hotheaded captain. The ominous setting. And shy, reserved Thea coming out of her shell. She spends the majority of the book fighting for people to take her seriously and she follows her intuition constantly (which keeps her alive through some pretty hair-raising moments that follow this scene).
