Joined 4 years ago from USA




Erica Gourley is a mother, teacher, aspiring author and poet of misfortune. She is from up the holler in West Virginia, but currently resides with her little family and large menagerie of pets in the flatlands of the Midwest.   After years of enduring incessant shit storms, she survived. When the storms finally ceased, she eventually uncovered the rose. Although It wasn't quite the rose she was initially in search of when she quit her job, cashed in her retirement (17 years before maturity) and pursued  her dream as a writer, and it's still debatable whether or not  she  completly lost her mind during that long, arduous journey, have no doubt that she discovered herself somewhere along the way. Now, several years later, all she has to show for her giant leap of faith is a  semifinished book manuscript, quite a few mediocre articles, and a plethora of poetry. Fortunately, she was able to go back to teaching and is once again earning a steady income. However, she stil has a pen, a voice and a dream to chase. Hell hath no fury- Epiphany!
