Dear Reader,

It is a pleasure to introduce you to this, my memoirs, written and edited by me, Erin Quinn.

My friend Clare gave me this notebook for Christmas, and I think I’m going to use it as a diary. I mean, all the great writers kept diaries and it seems a bit shameful that I’ve never actually managed it before.

But this year is different. These are extraordinary times in Derry – historically, politically and culturally and I suspect that it may soon become clear that I’m … well, the voice of a generation. After all, writing isn’t a choice. It’s a calling.

I hope, dear Reader, that you enjoy, cherish and value my insights.

To get a fringe or not to get a fringe?
Pros: will look French
Cons: might go frizzy

A hilarious insight into schoolgirl Erin's angst-ridden world ... it's good craic - and will make a great Christmas present.
Heat magazine
The perfect tie in to the award-winning Channel 4 series ... Fans of the show will love Erin's Diary.
Irish Examiner
Erin's Diary is the perfect accompaniment to the world of Clare's neuroses, Michelle's rebellions and Orla's madness. As a wee English fella myself, i have found it very educational. So wise up and nab a copy! It's good craic!

Anyone who has been called a dick on TV by the Derry Girls would never go on to read and enjoy Erin's Diary would they? Oh hang on a minute...
