Is there anything else you would like to share?

I'm looking for any opportunity to learn more about writing or speaking on specific subjects. I'm also an advocate for Fight Colorectal Cancer, a Washington, D.C.-based organization I advocate for in honor of my late mother, Diane.

Please list any awards or special recognition you have received. Don't be shy!

I recently won a GOLD Award from the Nonfiction Authors Association for my online dating book, So Many Tools in the Internet Shed. I won an online tutorial competition at my cosmetology school. My video received 1600 votes, and I won $1,000.

If you own a business, tell us about it.

I don't own a business but I am finally a published author! Check out Online Dating: So Many Tools in the Internet Shed on Amazon and Smashwords. Thanks!

Have you written any books? List them here!

The second ebook will actually be turned into a three-part-series now. It's based on a blog I wrote on my experience attending beauty college as a more mature student. This memoir's first installment should be out in 2015.

What topics do you speak about?

I don't speak yet but having attended so many of these meetings now, it is definitely something I will pursue.


I'm a writer working on my second memoir based on another blog. I've toured with Cirque du Soleil and worked inside Folsom State Prison and for the Cemetery and Funeral Bureau. I also have a cosmetology license and two cats.

What Erica L. is saying about this Meetup Group

Loved the group tonight and appreciate all the advice I received regarding my blog/book. UPDATE: I won my school's competition :)
