About the Author

Erin Wilson

Erin took the long way to sales. After completing degrees in Applied Math (BS) and Computer Science (MS) at Illinois Institute of Technology, she toggled titles at several start-up software and technology companies. During her career, Erin has held roles ranging from Product Evangelist to Business Partner Enabler to Sales Engineer, and has conducted seminars on sales methods and techniques. While she has written for several blogs over the years, The Sapient Salesman - Spinning Life into Lessons, One Tale at a Time is her first book. When not writing or selling, Erin enjoys outdoor activities such as trolling for coconuts and poolside parties, but her favorite hobby is recreational debating. Verbally fencing with a skilled opponent - using common sense and shared experiences to carry the argument - is one of her favorite pastimes and was partially the inspiration for her book. She currently lives in Miami, Florida.
