Stephanie was born in California, and has lived in five states and three Canadian provinces. After high school, she laced up her hiking boots and went backpacking through 17 countries. She returned to earn degrees in journalism and education, working first as a magazine editor and then as a fourth grade teacher. She has been happily settled for the past sixteen years in Texas with her husband and two children. Her humorous observations of motherhood have been published in The Washington Post.
As a school volunteer and reading tutor, Stephanie loves listening to children talk about their favorite books. She doesn’t mind a bit if they chuckle when they see her six-foot frame folded, knees-to-chin, into a classroom chair.
When not scouring shops for longer jeans, she enjoys researching her family history, and is proud of her grandfather’s brother, Albert Ervine, who saved lives as an engineer aboard RMS Titanic.
In her spare time, Stephanie enjoys kayaking and hiking with her husband and their shepherd pup named Ezra.
Stephanie Ervine is represented by Mandy Hubbard and Garrett Alwert at Emerald City Literary Agency.
