Erica (Crouch) Sykora is a writer, a reader, and one of the humans keeping the zoo in order (the zoo being a blind/deaf dog Violet, a rescue dog Kodi with anxiety problems, a stubborn black cat named Scott and a three-legged kitten named Lt. Dan). She has co-founded two publishing collectives, Patchwork Press and Weapenry, 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 with her husband Peter and is expecting a sweet baby sometime spring 2020. She currently works as a content creator for Crosby Marketing.

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.
