Erainna was born and raised in central Louisiana. The oldest of five children she always yearned to be a teacher and forced her siblings to play school year round. Naturally, she graduated with a teaching degree in 1995 and earned her Master's degree in 2000. Five years later she earned her Education Specialist degree in early childhood education. After fifteen years in the classroom, she moved to the role of school counselor and has never been happier. While serving as school counselor at an elementary school in northeast Texas, she frequently uses children's books as therapy to help her students heal, learn and grow. Ideas for her books come from the students she works with on a daily basis.
