Erica Miner


Author, Screenwriter, Journalist, Lecturer

Erica Miner has a passion for writing! In a series of interviews and articles found in these web pages, she explains her writing process and how her music, poetry and journaling have reflected her own life's experiences. She confesses to her readers that her first two novels are based on her journals - but only the author knows for sure what is fiction and what is not!

Her highly intuitive writing runs the gamut of emotions and genres, including novels, screenplays, poetry and E-zine and newsletter articles.

PDF downloads of sample chapters from each of her novels, Travels With My Lovers and FourEver Friends, are available on their respective book pages.

Testimonials

"Your informative and thoughtful presentation to the Wagner Society of Southern California in San Diego was simply outstanding. Your ability to stand in front of the attendees and deliver an extremely well organized and interesting presentation without notes held the audience glued to your every word. Your personal experiences as a first violinist in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra playing Wagner’s demanding operatic works, plus your humor and candor both in the presentation and in answering questions, added significantly to the personal connection you were able to establish with the Wagner aficionados, many of whom have in-depth knowledge of Wagner’s music and Wagner the man. Great job!!"
Larry Hunt, Wagner Society of Southern California

"Erica, I was so glad to get to hear you live – you were terrific! You are a beautiful and welcoming performer/lecturer. You have the ability to weave your knowledge/information into your interesting rich stories, which of course pulls the audience right into the palm of your hand. Your audience today was stimulated, engaged – and left as I did, knowing more about opera and its history."
Maggie Marshall, author and lecturer

"I want to thank you for the generosity of spirit shown Monday night... (you) presented a clear and content-rich message, and you were very well received, as I'm sure you know. I'm sure that you could tell that the audience was WITH you the whole time."
Gary Young, Director of Professional Development, IWOSC

"The Mystery panel was terrific! You did a great job in selecting the authors. Each one was delightful, clever, knowledgeable and very generous with information."
Flo Selfman, President, Independent Writers of Southern CA

"I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation today. You were most impressive, speaking fluently, without any notes. I enjoyed your theme of family chaos and the wonderful musical examples you used to support it. You also asked engaging questions of your listeners."
Eileen Wingard, violinist

"Thank you for giving us a GREAT show. I was very impressed!
"
John T. Wills, Blog Talk Radio talk show host
