Erika Taylor caught the writing bug in her late teens, and decided to become a Great American Novelist. After all, no one has ever failed at that. Against all odds, the plan did pay dividends and her novel, The Sun Maiden, was published in 1991. Shortly thereafter, she became a researcher for the RAND Corp. working on a variety of sociological studies. During her eight years there, she served as field manager for projects that looked at homelessness, mental illness and violence among gang members. Eventually, Erika decided to exchange the world of measurement for the world of metaphor, embarking on a career with Hanley Wood. She is currently editor in chief for Pool & Spa News and Aquatics International.
