Erin Osborne is the creative director of the children's program at East Bayou Baptist Church in Lafayette, Louisiana. In addition to teaching music and drama, she works behind the scenes in tech for the productions the church performs every Sunday. She also writes, directs, and choreographs musicals.
Osborne has traveled extensively on mission trips to countries such as the Ukraine, Haiti, Guatemala, and Mexico, teaching hygiene and the Bible to the local children and building carports, playgrounds, and bathrooms. She is the founder of the Woodbluff Club, a neighborhood group of children who serve their community through canned food drives, fundraising, raking lawns for the elderly, and visiting nursing homes. Her immense amount of service garnered her a spot on the ABC show Good Morning America.
Osborne is the author of several short stories, which have been published by Purdue University Calumet, Baylor University, and Rotary International. Her younger brother inspired her to write her first novel, The Recruit. She has always been drawn to children's stories because of the innocence, adventure, and imagination that come along with them.
A graduate of Baylor University with a BA in Latin American Studies, Osborne founded the Lafayette Swing Dance Society, where she is a dance instructor. She resides in Lafayette, Louisiana.
