I love talking about books and writing. As a former junior high and high school teacher, I'm comfortable speaking with groups of all ages and sizes on a variety of topics, including craft (What's The Point of POV, Dialogue That Moves, Never Not Revising) and the writer's life (Surviving a Deadline, Critique Partners are Critical). I'm also happy to customize a program for your specific needs.

I'm available for the following types of programs:

  • Book clubs
  • School visits
  • Writing groups
  • Skype visits

"Erica's visit was an incredible addition to Teen Read Week as she shared her experiences on a variety of topics including: the process of becoming published, editing one's own work and the work of others, & the value of reading for enjoyment and as a reward. Erica's stories and thoughts came to life thanks to her enchanting personality and honest humor. Also, as a former English teacher, Erica's heart for offering constructive criticism of student work was warmly welcomed."
