Erin McRoy is the founder and editor-in-chief of Smoking Jacket Magazine and author of the “Smoke ‘Em if You Got ‘Em” column. He is 43 years old and lives with his wife Sable Aradia and their partner Jamie in Vernon, BC. A smoker for about 30 years, he began smoking a pipe a few years ago and found it a relaxing and invigorating experience that he really enjoyed. As a gentleman and an aficionado, he has spent the last few years perfecting his technique and studying the different nuances of pipe smoking, cigar smoking, hookah smoking and smoking in general.
Erin began the magazine as a hobby blog and found that with its quickly snowballing success, it was necessary to expand into a full-fledged magazine with multiple contributors. Smoking Jacket Magazine was launched on May 12, 2014.
Erin is also a senior editor at Wildspace: the Spelljammer Fanzine & the co-founder of the Okanagan Pipe & Cigar Club
