Erica wrote her first full song at age 8 and her first 400-page novel at 11. She pursued a music career until age 16, when an illness left her speaking in a whisper, never to sing again. The loss of passion and purpose left her searching for meaning, and her journey was dominated by visions of her past lives in Erosia. She coaxed her whispery voice back to life to bring those visions to Earth, until the illness stole her second voice, and she refocused on mastering prose.
Owing to her epic battle to chase her dreams, she is often advised to write an auto-biography. Yet Erica sees her timeless journey echoed in the Night Gem series. Though her past is an impressive cavalcade of photos, music, poetry and glamorous incarnations of the phoenix that she is, she recently decided to revamp her website to focus on Erosia. Perhaps in the future, she will publish more books to reveal the woman behind the force of nature she became.
