Erica Pike

Biography:
I haven't been writing since I was in diapers and I haven't been an avid reader since I learned my ABC's. I have, however, always been a daydreamer spinning tales after tales in my head. So far I've been a vampire, jungle nymph, time-traveler, ghost, noblewoman, survivor on a deserted island, a witch and so, so much more that it'd take months to count out every occupation and scenario. 

I have been writing for several years now and reading became an obsession roughly in my late twenties. Of course I read books before that, but since I'm a university business graduate I really didn't have much time to read in my free time. My free time back then was time to party! And to belly-dance, and practice Taekwondo. 

I live in Iceland and I often say that my real name sounds like Klingon to foreigners so I don't even bother revealing it. I took part in a Taekwondo tournament in the USA once and felt so, so sorry for the announcer. Otherwise, I'm a happy single mother of two adorable boys. I came out as pansexual in my late thirties after years of struggling to figure myself out. I've been involved with the Icelandic National Queer Organization since. Writing my books has helped me figure myself out. 

Anyway, I'm a friendly, easy-going person, so don't be afraid to talk to me. I have a weird sense of humor - either you get me or you don't. There are various ways to reach me if you want to chat.

  1. I had a guestbook on my old site and decided to put the comments I'd gotten here:

    Hey babe, this is awesome. I should have mine up and running just after christmas or the New Year.

    by Erica Pike

    Hæ sæta,Er að panta bókina þína hjá Amazon, hlakka mikið til að lesa hana. Þetta er alveg frábært hjá þér.

    Just finished your book "A Life Without You". Faaantastic! You do the first person perspective sooo well. Looking forward to reading more from you. You speak to issues, so subtlety but loudly. And your characters...love them. I want to hear more about Adam and Jesse, and would buy and read a story of any of your secondary characters too. Eric needs to find true love...and Jazz...and Chester. Great work. Keep it coming :)

    Wow, didn't know people were actually commenting here!

    Mari: Thanks so much. I'm glad you liked it.

    Sigrún: Mánuður síðan!! Ertu búin að lesa bókina?

    Kat: Thank you so, so much for the compliments. They mean so much. Absolutely Eric is coming out in less than two months and Jazz is next (though I might squeeze in a novella length about Adam and Jesse).

    Þóra: Eeep! Ertu búin að finna mig??

  2. Just read the comment that Jazz will get his story soon, I couldn't be more thrilled. I've just read Life without you followed by absolutely Eric and I feel bereft. I miss being in their world and there stories. May I add that your grammar and syntax is superior to many ebooks I have read by authors whose first language is English. I am married to a Dutchman and his English can put natural English speakers to shame. I think people whose first language is not English work that much harder for correct usuage. Anyway, I love your books and can't wait for Jazz's - Beverley Jansen

    1. Thank you so much, Beverley. Yes, us foreigners try hard to sound correct, which often results in us sounding a little too correct, hehe. I still get a little insecure about the syntax, but I have good editors to catch whatever mistakes I make.

      Yes, Jazz is next ^.^ I'm about 2/3'rds done with the first draft and I'm hoping it'll be out early next year. Can't make any promises though since I'm not my own publisher! However, I just posted a small excerpt today and there will be more before now and the release date.

  3. I ran across you on Goodreads column they send me stuff about. So how has indie publishing been working? Where are you at today with publishers? http://KentLJohnson.com

    1. The indie publishing has only been a WIP for about a month, but it's been a steep learning curve. It's going better than I expected and I'm having fun with it. There were several publishers I could have gone with, but I've been wanting to try self-publishing for a couple of years and finally took the plunge after I got my manuscripts released back to me.

      I'm a hybrid, as I have a publisher for my longer works. I'm in no way done with publishers :)
