Erin M. Klitzke has been writing since she was an adolescent, though most of those early works will never see the light of day. She got her BA in history and anthropology from Grand Valley State University and her MA in history from Oakland University, and much to her mother’s occasional dismay, what she does with those degrees is write fiction.

She lives in Detroit’s northern suburbs and enjoys reading, sewing, gaming, and renaissance festivals when she’s not creating her own worlds. You can find her on the web at www.embklitzke.com, e-mail her at doc (at) embklitzke (dot) com, and follow her on Twitter at @EMBKDoc.

On occasion, I'll find myself cleaning instead, though, especially when I don't have any errands to run or the weather's bad. Doing both of these things gives me time away from my desk to think and clear my head.(less)

Three books to help you understand right now

I’ve decided to start with the three books below because in many, many ways they help to frame the situation that we a
