Hi, I'm Erica.

I write picture books, novels, chapter books, plays, articles, and waaaay too many emails. My books have made lots of friends and received great reviews. One even won the National Jewish Book Award! They've also landed on state book award lists in states including FL, MN, VA, MA, RI, MS and my home state of VT (I now live in Washington, DC). Yay, kids! Thanks, educators and media specialists! 

I speak (woof!) to kids - and adults - at schools, libraries, conferences, and festivals. I do a deep dive into my work as well as the creative process, revision techniques, and much more. My visits are energetic, informative, engaging, and just plain fun. This may be because I have a theater background, a law degree, and an ice cream truck driver's license. Also, getting kids excited about reading and writing is one of the ways I work out! 

I inspire. My message is that you matter, so you should tell your stories. And you should do it now!

Click here to send me a message. I'd love to hear from you. 

Yours truly,
