In the land of JRR Tolkien, Ericka would be a hobbit; hairy, small and lover of feasts. Barely reaching over five feet tall, the stay at home mother of two writes at her small, unimpressive desk daily to deliver a tale delved from her past.
Her small, sausage fingers scribble unintelligible words that are thankfully fixed by her word processor. She hoards her children's toys in bins. She ravenously eats meals her kids overlook, and she lovingly washes the garments worn by her hard-working, supportive husband.
Ericka works diligently on her novels to give compelling pieces of literature that would have otherwise filled a dwarf's vast diamond mine, instead of bookshelves at the local stores. Being only 28 years of age, this hobbit still has a lot of adventure to fulfill before she settles down to second breakfast.
