Welcome! I’m Erin!
I have always been a writer (and a reader) + a lover of all things travel. Here at Flying Off the Bookshelf, I’ve combined them to make a travel blog for bookworms.
The world is always open to you, whether you are planning your next vacation or just need to escape through the pages of a great book.
Besides running Flying Off the Bookshelf, I’m also a freelance copywriter. I started this blog when I realized I wanted to expand my copywriting practices outside the world of engineering. I decided to create my own travel site thinking it might open up future copywriting opportunities. Instead, it has grown to be its own business!

A little about me:
My husband and I have been married for 12 years, and he is my favorite person in the world to travel with! (We always joke that we travel so well together because I make all the travel plans and then he is there to improvise when something inevitably falls apart.) We also have an elementary school-aged daughter (but you won’t see much about her around here because those are our internet decisions, etc. etc.)
Things I love: dark chocolate, peanut butter, reading, Disney, early mornings on a trip when the world feels exciting, the North Carolina mountains, swimming, making lists, my hometown of Huntsville, Alabama.
Things I don’t love (or actually kind of hate): onions, running, not getting enough sleep, coffee, spicy food, free-fall rides.
What I love most of all: my family.
Especially when I get to adventure with them.
Thanks for being here!
