Erica has the ability to cut through to the “heart” of a story, stripping away irrelevant details that can bog-down a narrative and bore a reader. She has a flair with words that can likewise enhance and polish literary works making them much more appealing and attractive. The book proposal she compiled for me captured the attention of a major agent which eventually led to a publishing contract. — Bob Cranmer, author The Demon of Brownsville Road, published by Random House in 2014.

“This book (Macro Man) never would have happened without Erica” —Mark Fishman
