Erica Lawson was born in Sydney Australia, where she grew up and has lived all her life. Erica hadn't really considered taking up writing until 2005, when she jumped into the world of online fan fiction, which lead to an opportunity to submit a manuscript to a publisher at the end of 2007. And the rest, they say, is history.

Her first novel, "Possessing Morgan", won the 2010 Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Mystery/Thriller. Her second novel, a Goldie finalist, "The Chronicles of Ratha", was released in 2010. "Soulwalker", her third release, was a 2013 Goldie winner for Best Speculative Fiction. Her latest release, "Miss-Match", co-written with A.C. Henley, was released through Affinity eBooks in April 2013. "Reflected Passion" was release in August/September 2013 through Blue Feather Books.

Soulwalker won a 2012 Rainbow Award as Best Lesbian Sci-fi/Fantasy. Out Of Retirement won a 2014 Rainbow Award as Best Lesbian Romantic Comedy.

A hundred years into the future, in a near-totalitarian state, there exists a group of feared Government assassins called The Black Shadow Corps. They are albinos, able to send their inner shadow to kill in the name of the law. Tarris Waite is leader of The Black Shadow Corps. But she is different from them, visibly marked by her pale blue eyes. Her teammates consider her a half-breed, to be feared, and despised. A childhood accident left Tarris a paraplegic, yet she has never given up looking for a cure. Asher Hyrea is a medical researcher investigating nerve regeneration, and Tarris believes she may hold the key to her walking again. But Tarris soon learns that nothing is as it seems. Suddenly, even the most trusted members of her Shadow Corps team are suspect. Could her meeting with Asher be more than mere coincidence? When her loyalty is questioned, Tarris is left with no choice but to run. She is driven underground, where she discovers a horrifying secret that threatens the very fabric of society. Now Tarris is in a desperate fight to save her life and, more importantly, to save those who turned their back on her. But no one ever leaves the Corps alive.

Melanie Stokes was a doctor—a very good one, or so she hoped. She was calm and cool under pressure, and very little fazed her. Until… Caitlin Joseph ran a small retirement home for older women in need. The fact that everyone in the house was gay was a coincidence, although it did cut down the number of women agreeing to live there. Mel took up an offer to do some relief work for a local community center when their regular doctor was away on holidays. As soon as she arrived at the home she knew something was different about the place. Was it the little old lady chasing the paper boy down the street or the sign saying “Dykes Retirement Home”? But there was something about the place that also appealed to her. Sure, Caitlin was cute as a button, but it was more the fact that she took very good care of her charges, despite their rather bizarre behavior. The older women seized the opportunity to introduce a woman into Caitlin’s lonely life, using any means possible to keep Mel coming back. Their plans were boosted by the introduction of another woman into the house, who set hearts a fluttering and blood pressure rising. Now if she was a lesbian it would have been perfect…
