Home » About


I am a mother of two sweet teenage boys. I am a wife to the man of my dreams and wishes, Gary. I was born on a late spring day in Brooklyn, NY where I grew up for many years. My love of reading and writing is attributed to the PBS show, Reading Rainbow.

During my teenage years my family moved to the South Shore of Long Island. It was then I began writing V.C. Andrews fan fiction in black and white marble notebooks. English teachers took notice and advised me to pursue a career in journalism and writing. But it wasn’t meant to be.

In my early twenties I returned to Brooklyn, New York and pursued various temporary careers from jewelry to real estate sales. One early morning after a night out at a club, I met Gary on a NYC sidewalk. We had a whirlwind romance, I moved to the U.K. and we got married. After living in England for five years we returned to the states to start a family.

I have since written and published my romance novel: Delicious: A Rumour Mill Novel. I’m working on a new novel called In the Wake. In the Wake will be published by Paper Rabbit Books LLC.

I began this blog back in 2011 as an avenue for people to read my writing. Since then it has exploded into a lifestyle blog in which the Erica Hutchings teams contributes articles such as traveling, fashion and more. My team are friends and family that love sharing their great experiences with me and the world.

My site is more than a blog about my novels and lifestyle. We also provide a safe place for hard traumatic discussion such as mental health and abuse. These posts will always come with a disclaimer and a trigger warning.

Currently my family and I live in the majestic Hill Country of Texas. My contributors live in various parts of the world.

We love that you’ve discovered us so a big thank you for being here.
