Erica Crouch is a writer, a reader, and the mom to a blind and deaf dog named Violet. She has co-founded two publishing collectives, Patchwork Press and Weapenry, and has published nine novels and written two screenplays. Originally from Ellicott City, Erica has since moved into the heart of Annapolis, Maryland where she lives in a small house in the middle of the woods and is completing grad work for her master's degree in strategic brand communication. She currently works as a paralegal for the State's Attorney's Office.

As someone who battles anxiety and suffers from PTSD, Erica is an outspoken proponent of erasing the stigma that surrounds mental health and is an advocate for being an all-around nice human being. She loves wit, a good philosophical debate, and strongly advocates for being socially informed. Her favorite things are her tiny family, reading, taking pictures, and laying on the ground knowing there's nothing else she has to get done for the night. She also really, really, really likes dogs.
