About

Hi, I’m Ericka. Welcome to my little slice of the internet.

I write a blog, and every Friday, I send out a newsletter updating you on my latest books, my week, what I’ve been up to, etc. If you’d like to receive this (and all of my writing) in your inbox, just click here. And for all of my past work, check out my archive.

I’d also love if you’d check out my latest book, Between You and Me. It’s a compilation of poetry and essays meditating on “cultural Christianity,” raising an ADHD child, dealing with body dysmporphia, being a former atheist, and working through my roles as mother, wife, and writer all while seeking the goodness of God. I also have a few other books I’ve written here on my books page.

I truly appreciate you stopping by, and if you have any questions for me, just send it through my contact form.

Take care, friend.

– Ericka
