writing

Erin is based in Los Angeles and available for any writing projects. Her experience is mostly science fiction, but also includes animation and comedy.

Her non-fiction work includes the best-selling Audible Original series "The Science of Sci-Fi" which explores the use of gravity and spacetime in science fiction. She also has written multiple episodes on the science behind video games with the popular Extra Credits YouTube channel.

consulting

Erin is currently working as a technical consultant to the STAR TREK franchise, advising from concept development through post-production.

Instead of poking holes in beloved sci-fi universes, Erin sees them as a jumping point to apply current science and push it beyond current limits.  Given her background, Erin's specialty focuses on the use of general relativity in sci-fi through faster-than-light travel, artificial gravity, alternate universes and more, and after teaching extensively in classrooms and at museums, she is well-versed in most fields of astronomy and physics.

Though the Star Trek universe consumes most of Erin's time these days, if you are interested in retaining her as a consultant, please reach out to discuss scope and fees. Thank you for your interest!
