Erin Davis is a mother of three sons, a wife of one husband, and a grader of many essays. Originally from Orange County, CA Erin has lived in Spokane for nine years. When her oldest son left home to go to graduate school last August, Erin began suffering from one-third-of-an-empty-nest syndrome. A full time English instructor at North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, Erin loves helping her students become better writers and critical thinkers. Because she is a bit of a language and grammar nerd, Erin also teaches a course at Whitworth University on the structure and development of the English language. When she is not staring at her enormous children and wondering where the time has gone—or grading essays—Erin tries to squeeze in some time for her own writing, and often turns to the Little Spokane River for inspiration.
