My name is ERIN DONOHUE. I am a young adult author, poet and freelance editor based in Wellington, New Zealand. I hold a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Creative Writing and a Graduate Diploma in Publishing, both from Whitireia New Zealand. Currently, I work as a production editor with legal publisher Thomson Reuters. I aspire to write more young adult fiction as well as work with others’ words in an creative, editorial role. »

My first novel, Because Everything Is Right but Everything Is Wrong, draws heavily on my own experience with mental illness and was published in 2017 by Escalator Press. You can purchase it from your local bookstore or online here.

 ‘It’s changed the way I attend to those I teach. I cannot give it higher praise than that.’

– Bernard Beckett, author of Genesis, on Because Everything Is Right but Everything Is Wrong
