I’m a Christian who writes. My fiction, essays, poetry, and prose appear widely in various publications. I have an MFA from Mills College and a BA from UCLA. I’m a Mount Hermon Writers Alumni and a NaNoWriMo Winner 2015.
My name is pronounced like this: eh- r- eh- y- n- d- ih- r- ah
I took a pause from writing after earning my MFA from Mills College.
I write about personal and significant events in which I’ve seen the hand of God impart wisdom and grace into my life.
