Author Erica was born Erica Sullivan in Surrey, England in 1960. She was brought up on Hayling Island, Hampshire, where her family had relocated when she was 4 years old.

Today, Erica is a divorced mother of two sons, Samuel and Edward. Both of them have now grown up and support her in her writing interests. Erica now manages her time between her homes in Lake Como, Italy, and Suffolk, Cheshire. She claims to have developed an interest in writing romance stories after undertaking a course in creative writing organized by the Avon Foundation. Erica says that she has an insatiable appetite for interfering in the business of other people. That is why she often indulges in a conversation with unknown people with the hope that she will unearth something useful out of it that can be used in her writing material.

Erica thinks it is the best way to come up with authentic characters worth creating for a story. However, her sons seem to see it in a different way. They say that they will not able to recover from their childhood embarrassments because of the compulsion of their mother.

And just like her fans, they too are waiting eagerly to read more novels written by her. Erica says that she had no intention of becoming an author even after reaching her late twenties. She felt she did not have the confidence of an author at that time. When she began writing, she just did it as an enjoyable hobby. Her writing was mostly inspired by her deep interest in reading. From a young age, Erica loved to lose herself in an interesting book. Then one day, it struck her mind that she should try her hand at writing a story of her own. This thought was also fueled by the idea of taking her escapism sense to a level higher.

Erica began to dream about losing herself in a book written out of her own imagination. Throughout her adult life, Erica has lived in northern England. She has loved and cherished the picturesque villages of Yorkshire and Chesire. Today, she feels blessed to be able to use those places in her novels’ settings. Erica believes the writing environment is very important for a writer. When she is in Suffolk, she chooses to sit in her study room and write. It is filled with bookshelves and photographs of her sons that motivate her to do justice with her writing talents. When living in Italy, Erica’s writing area is very small. So, she tends to step outside very often and sit on her balcony to write. This helps her to overcome her writer’s block and gets her going. The scene of a boat passing by in the nearby lake provides the much-needed distraction for the rebooting of her brain.

Currently, Erica enjoys her time as a noteworthy author. She just wants to write as many books as she can in whatever years she is left with so that her fans keep remembering her through her novels even after she is gone. Erica likes interacting with her followers through her website and answering their queries. She also uses her website to post updates about the upcoming releases of her novels.
