Erica was raised in the suburbs of Detroit. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Philosophy and obtained her Juris doctorate at Pepperdine Law School. A few years ago, she cleaned out a closet in her home office and found dozens of stories that she had been working on for two decades. It came down to this: either burn all the pages or start taking herself seriously as a writer. It being a hot summer, and the risk of wild fire great, she had little choice but to keep writing.
Erica W. Jamieson lives in Los Angeles with her family and a Whoodle named Willa.
