A Bird Alone


Available January 10th 2024!

Marge Marksmen lives in a world beyond her control. As the widow of a once struggling traveling vacuum salesman, Marge faces motherhood in a single-wide trailer in the mid-eighties, barely able to keep her teenage daughter in line, not to mention her autistic son. She lives retreated within herself, having once given life a second chance with a new man and a new job, only to have both taken away savagely by the hands of a stranger one summer evening in the seventies. Marge has since convinced herself that God is not to be trusted, relying on her weekly welfare checks and political affiliation to keep her afloat.

Her daughter, Whitney, lives in a separate reality. Her hope is in her boyfriend, Jamal, and the baby she's recently conceived. She's convinced it's her ticket out of the trailer park and into a more normal existence that doesn't involve an out-of-touch mother or a brother she doesn't understand. But when her dream of a happy family peters out, and Whitney discovers a heartbreaking secret Jamal has been keeping from her, Whitney takes fate into her own hands, changing the course of her life forever.

Told through the perspectives of a combative mother and daughter and the people who love them, A Bird Alone shows how God's grace seeps through the cracks of even the most hardened circumstances and how His hand steers life's outcome, not our own.

Letters to My Former Self


I’m currently working on a recurring project called Letters to My Former Self. In essence, it's an epistolary memoir that features letters I'm writing as a believer to the old me, an atheist woman in the 21st century. Once completed, I'll be publishing it in book form.

I'm sending out a new letter to my subscribers every Wednesday. Be sure to subscribe here to receive those letters in your inbox.

A Violent Hope


Mack Reynolds is battling his demons. After years spent attempting to heal wounds from being abused as a child, he confronts the author of his nightmares—his uncle—leading to a catastrophic decision and permanently sealing his fate.

As the reality of Mack’s decision unfolds, his wife and daughter live life in a dark void, falling into addictions and assessing their pain through ways that only force them farther apart. It’s not until Mack’s mother, Rochelle, can confront her past, her questionable living arrangement with her husband and his mistress, and the bitter hurt that’s metastasized inside of her that Natalie and Wren can receive the guidance they both desperately need. But is it too late?

Told through the lives of the three women touched by Mack’s struggle, A Violent Hope takes a deeper look into the human heart and the God who repeatedly heals all wounds.




As the live-in manager at her father’s funeral home in Burling Gates, Missouri, Vienna Oaks has succumbed to the mediocrity and abject loneliness of her life. Her days are suspended between the mundane and the misery of her clients’ throttling grief, of changing light bulbs, and encountering strangers as bereft as she. But after orchestrating the funeral for a little boy named Parker prompts a severe panic attack, she finds herself at a personal crossroads in which she is forced to confront the pregnancy she’s been hiding, her childhood nemesis, the boy she never stopped loving, and the deep-seated secret surrounding her mother’s death more than a decade before.

In another part of town, Heather Turnbull has just learned from her estranged father that her mother, a lifelong recluse, has died. When making arrangements for her funeral, Heather chooses Oaks Family Funeral home, where she comes face to face with Vienna – the woman she tortured throughout grade school, the woman who has recently had an affair with her husband.

Together, Vienna and Heather navigate through a makeshift friendship born of circumstance and devised to assuage their ambivalence towards motherhood and their tenuous relationship with reality, discovering, in tandem, the art of forgiveness and the will to go on. With humor and poignancy, Ericka Clay’s debut novel, Unkept, explores the thorny landscape of childhood trauma and the ferocious politics between little girls — and the adults they become.


Dear Hearts


From the outside, Mitch and Elena Reynolds are a typical White Smoke, Arkansas family: married, raising a daughter, running a local business, attending church on Sundays. But their happy family image starts to crack when Mitch has an affair with a local man, Aaron Hooper.

Mitch and Elena’s tumultuous relationship is further tested with failed attempts to get pregnant again, forced AA meetings to curb their alcoholism and bitter therapy appointments to try and “fix” their daughter, Sela.

It’s not until both Mitch and Elena trust in their love for their daughter that they begin to rekindle the connection they first formed as kids. But is it too late?

From the author of Unkept, Dear Hearts is an exquisitely told cautionary tale of love, loss, and human connection in the wake of darkness.


Between You and Me


Between You and Me is a compilation of poetry and essays once posted on Instagram by Ericka Clay. Ericka brings you bits of her heart as she meditates on “cultural Christianity,” raising an ADHD child, dealing with body dysmorphia, being a former atheist, and working through her roles as mother, wife, and writer all while seeking the goodness of God.


Songs About God


Songs About God is a book of poetry inspired by reading God’s Word as a woman and living life as an imperfect follower of Christ.


The Rule Book for Mothers


The Rule Book for Mothers is an ode to motherhood and the many losses and struggles encountered on the journey. It meditates on the hard parts of raising a daughter and being a woman, but it also reveals the hope-lined possibilities when one perseveres.
