Erika Krouse is the author of Tell Me Everything: The Story of a Private Investigation (memoir), Contenders (novel), Come Up and See Me Sometime (short stories), and a forthcoming collection, Save Me (short stories). Tell Me Everything was a Book of the Month Club pick and has been optioned by Playground Entertainment for TV adaptation. Contenders was a finalist for the VCU Cabell First Novelist Award, and Come Up and See Me Sometime was a New York Times Notable Book and won the Paterson Fiction Award.
Erika’s short stories and essays have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Esquire.com, Granta.com, Ploughshares, The New York Times, One Story, The Kenyon Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, The Iowa Review, Glimmer Train, Story, Boulevard, Crazyhorse, and Shenandoah. Her work has been shortlisted for Best American Short Stories, Best American Nonrequired Reading, and the Pushcart Prize.

She has won fellowships and scholarships to the Longleaf Writers Workshop, Bread Loaf Writers Workshop, Sewanee Writers Workshop, and the inaugural Amtrak Residency.
