ERIN YOUNG'S debut thriller, THE FIELDS, was inspired by an article about the menacing power of Big Agriculture. A decision to set the novel in the corn-capital of the world led her to make a fascinating journey across Iowa, from the state capitol to the state fair, from chance encounters with cops and farmers to an audience with a local mayor, shooting Glocks and getting caught in supercell storms. Having grown up in a fishing village in Devon, she is drawn to the claustrophobic dramas of rural small-towns and the secrets they hide.

Erin Young is the pseudonym of acclaimed historical novelist, Robyn Young, author of eight internationally bestselling novels. She has been published in 20 languages in 23 countries, selling over two million books worldwide.

THE FIELDS is Erin’s first contemporary thriller, following Sergeant Riley Fisher of the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office. On publication in 2022, it became a Glamor Book of the Year, a Times Thriller of the Month, was picked by Amazon USA as a best book of the month, and Erin was named in Oprah Daily as one of the best female thriller writers of the year. THE FIELDS was also a finalist for hardcover thriller of the year at the ITW awards. It is in development for TV by the producers of Big Little Lies and City on a Hill.

The sequel, ORIGINAL SINS, will be published early in 2024.

Erin lives and writes in Brighton, England.
