Erin Hourigan is the author-illustrator of the Schneider Family Book Award Honor winner In the Blue. In high school, Erin first learned of her dad’s clinical depression. As she grew up and embarked on her own emotional journey, she wanted to make a book that could spark conversations in families who may not always talk about such big emotions. She lives in Portland, Oregon. Erin invites you to visit her at erinhourigan.com or follow her on Instagram @erinnicholeart.
