Erica Landis started her writing career in Mrs. Kelly's second-grade class with a tear-jerking essay about a No. 2 pencil. She went on to write herself and her friends into a 1980's General Hospital storyline. The notebook pages were passed around like wildfire. She writes often about life after the loss of her two-year-old son, Noah. And after 10 years of marriage, her husband still hasn't gotten used to her dropping her pants on the floor as soon she walks in the door.
