Erin Rainwater is a Pennsylvania native who probably should have been born in the 19th century but somehow got flash-forwarded into the 20th. There was never any question that she would be a nurse when she grew up, regardless of which century she was in. And beginning in about the seventh grade, there was no question that she’d launch that nursing career in the military. As an Army nurse during the Vietnam War era, she was privileged to care for the bodies and spirits of soldiers and veterans, including repatriated POWs and MIAs. Her military experience has helped in writing parts of her novels. Her support of the military is ongoing, and one of her favorite pastimes is volunteering at the USO in Denver.
Her first two historical novels are set in her favorite time period in American history, the mid-nineteenth century. Multiple award-winning True Colors takes place in Virginia during the Civil War. The Arrow That Flieth By Day (the title is taken from Psalm 91) is set in post-Civil War Colorado. Her novel Refining Fires takes place in the late 1950s, and is the story of a disfigured Korean War veteran and a nurse with a tainted reputation.
