About Me

Hi! I’m Erika. I grew up in Michigan and graduated from college with a degree in Creative Writing (can’t you tell?) and Psychology.

Hey look! It’s a cloth breast pad!

I’m a wife and mom of five kids, who I homeschool.

Plus one two dogs

Maizey, the Dog Without a Downside


I’m into the whole Attachment Parenting thing, which means homebirthing, nursing, babywearing, cloth-diapering, intact bodies and homeschooling.

Homeschooling. Or just hanging out.

Other than writing, I love to read and sleep.

In 2008 I had a Biliopancreatic Diversion with a Duodenal Switch and got really skinny.
