Erika Dreifus's latest book (and first poetry collection) is titled Birthright, published by Kelsay Books in November 2019.

Erika is also the author of a story collection, Quiet Americans, which was published by Last Light Studio and named a 2012 Sophie Brody Medal Honor Title (for "outstanding Jewish literature").
