About Erica

Erica Monroe is a USA Today Bestselling Author of suspenseful historical romance. She’s an independent author who believes her books are her business, so over the last four years she has learned promotion, book production, and sales. She graduated from The University of Tampa Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Writing and a Minor in English. For seven years, she worked as an administrative assistant in a variety of fields: banking, grants management, and engineering, where she was responsible for many administrative projects and assisted with event planning and promotion. Those marketing and management skills have carried over to her work as a virtual assistant.

Now she is committed to running her own small business, Quillfire Publishing. Quillfire Author Services is a subset of that, and opened in October 2015. Erica offers marketing consultation, virtual assistant services, and editing.
