About the Author
Erin King is a regular person with a job and a side-hustle who spends most of her spare time writing.
She’s expanding How To Be Wise AF into a series with the Relationship Edition, the Write Like A Writer Edition, The 15-day Foodie, and the Deeper Dive Edition, all coming soon.
And because being helpful is the name of the game, she’s also released a series of prompted problem-solving workbooks.
The “What’s Your Problem” series of workbooks have practical self-help exercises that empower you to turn your challenges into solutions.
These simple workbooks offer a systematic framework for exploring and understanding negative situations by being proactive and positive. The series includes a workbook for teens and one for women.
There is also a series of medical notebooks/symptom trackers. These books were inspired by the years her husband spent recording the symptoms of their daughter’s migraines. They started when she was just a toddler, so she couldn’t clearly communicate what was happening. It took years to unravel that terrible mystery. But by recording her episodes in detail, they were eventually able to piece together what was happening. This understanding was crucial for getting their daughter the help she needed.
Erin personally understands that navigating the healthcare system can be a scary, overwhelming experience. Having everything written down can cut down on that stress.
Then there are some fun books, a 90-Day Gratitude Journal, a Book Review Logbook, even a book for writers and puzzle lovers to hone their powers of description.
If you’re looking for something fun or a silly gift she’s also got a series of edgy lined notebooks on offer.
Erin also knows from her own experience half the battle with a writing routine is finding the best time to write every day.
So when she’s not writing, she’s creating videos such as the “Find Your Perfect Time To Write Everyday 5-Day Challenge.” This free step-by-step series helps you chart and map out the different aspects of your life to find the perfect time to write every day.
She’s also working on a course to help you get from procrastinating to publishing. Taking everything she’s learned from making this book so you can do the same.
And there are loads more helpful workbooks and fun stuff in the works!
Erin was a 51-year-old dreamer with a vision and a desire when she set out on this journey. A technophobe at heart, she learned that with today’s technology, anybody can be savvy if they just use the right programs. She spent a year figuring out the best ways to make writing faster, better, and more manageable, how to create her own graphics, and format her own books for Amazon and beyond. Along the way, she also confronted and overcame great bouts of self-doubt and imposter syndrome.
Erin doesn’t have a bunch of letters beside her name, but what she does have is a lifetime of experience and the wisdom and strength she’s gained from those experiences.
She has a Montessori Diploma and loves caring for the toddlers that teach her so much about human nature every day. She has a partial University education left behind after a nervous breakdown forced her to quit in the middle of her second year. The breakdown resulted from undiagnosed PTSD from a trauma that happened very early in her life.
In her 20’s, she was a musician in the 1990’s Vancouver music scene, but the lifestyle eventually took a toll. In her 30’s, she burned out and left it all behind.
For many years she grappled with crippling depression, narrowly avoiding suicide, addiction, and homelessness. She’s worked in nightclubs, been on welfare, cooked for millionaires, and now she does what she loves. She nurtures and cares for children.
After spending years piecing her life back together with the help of some masterful therapists, she managed to get to the other side. Life for her began after 40.
A late bloomer, she met and married the love of her life at 37 and had a daughter when she was 39. Erin arrived late to the party, but she’s been making up for lost time ever since.
Erin’s books are an accumulation of the lessons and knowledge she’s gained through years of heartache and redemption.
And she wants you to be able to do everything she’s done because she knows that if she can, so can you!
You’re never too old to live your passion, you’re never too small to do something big, and you’ll never want to stop once you really start to live.
