Erica Hayes was a law student, an air force officer, an editorial assistant and a musician, before finally landing her dream job: fantasy and romance writer.
She writes dark paranormal and urban fantasy romance, and her books feature tough, smart heroines and colourful heroes
with dark secrets.
She hails from Australia, where she drifts from city to city,
leaving a trail of chaos behind her. Currently, she's terrorizing the wilds of Northumberland.

I can't be at Romance Writers of Australia in 2014. Sorry! Moving to the other side of the world means it's a little far away... I'm going to miss you guys!

But I do plan on attending RWAustralia in 2015, along with ARRC. Also, WorldCon (Loncon3), British Fantasy Convention and the Romantic Novelists Association conference in the UK in 2014.

Come and say hi! I'd love to meet you.
