Erica Landis started her writing career in Mrs. Kelly’s second grade class with a tear-jerking essay about a No. 2 pencil. She went on to write herself and her friends into a 1980’s General Hospital storyline. The notebook pages were passed around the lunch table like wildfire. At that moment, young Erica knew she would pursue writing. With career pit stops in waitressing and retail, writing has been her saving grace and ticket to stardom. And by stardom, she means the moms at her daughter’s preschool think her writing is pretty cool.
She writes often about life after the loss of her two-year-old son, Noah. She is giddy about her four-year-old daughter, Miriam. And after ten years of marriage, her husband Hal still hasn’t gotten used to her dropping her pants on the floor as soon she walks in the door.

But whatever you do, please don’t ask her to tell you the story about the Christmas fruitcake.
