Erin has lived in and around the Exmouth area for the last ten years. The story of Bosun Bob was inspired by Erin’s adventures at sea whilst living aboard her yacht Rocket with her family and dog Bob, sailing from Exmouth to Croatia!

Bosun Bob

Bosun Bob sets sail at dawn, leaving the safety of his harbour for the open ocean. He meets a series of mysterious sea creatures before his ship is wrecked in a violent thunderstorm. Bob is rescued from an untimely end by an unusual saviour and meets an unlikely shipmate in the process.

‘This beautiful story and stunning illustrations really celebrate our ocean and the fascinating creatures who call it home. A book for children and grown-ups to enjoy together and treasure for generations to come’

Andy Cooper, Editor Coast Magazine – 

‘Come along and meet Erin and illustrator Emily at our special Festival event on Saturday 20th July 2024. You will hear all about the real adventures behind the story, ask questions and hear a short reading from the book.

Emily will deliver a workshop so little ones can have a go at their own illustrations. Bring your copy or buy a copy of Bosun Bob on the day and Erin and Emily will be delighted to sign it!

Erin and Emily will be at Manor Gardens all weekend, come along and say hello – they’d love to meet you and your four legged friends!’
