Ericka Lutz writes fiction (short and long), non-fiction (creative and commercial), and performance pieces. She's the author of the novel, The Edge of Maybe (March 2012), many short stories, columns, personal essays, and advice books. With a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies in Creative Arts, she learned at an early age to suit the genre to the content, not the reverse.
Ericka Lutz's personal column "Solo" appears at Literary Mama. Books include On the Go with Baby and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Stepparenting.
Ericka is a two-time recipient of a fiction fellowship at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. She has been interviewed on over 40 radio shows including "The Parent's Journal" on NPR and has been a featured guest on KRON-TV and KGO (ABC) in San Francisco. In 2007, she and her daughter Annie were featured on the American Public Media show, "The Story with Dick Gordon."
Ericka's early background was in the theater. She performed in the SF Bay Area, New York and Tokyo, and studied at the A.C.T Young Conservatory, the Lee Strasberg Institute, and the Center for Experimental and Interdisciplinary Art at San Francisco State University. She has performed solo at the Jean Shelton Theater under the direction of W. Kamau Bell, and was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle for her work at SoloHouse. Her solo show A Widow's To-Do List is in development in San Francisco.
Ericka teaches fiction writing and public speaking for U.C. Berkeley Extension, and is the Writing Consultant for the Evening & Weekend MBA program at U.C. Berkeley. Since 1992, she's provided private coaching on writing and writing process as well as editorial services to writers and organizations.
