Ernie’s been a writer and artist since as far back as…he can’t even remember how long ago, but it’s a safe bet there were probably charred sticks for writing on cave walls and such.
Nowadays, he lives near Boston with his wife, Kim, and their three kids. His first novel, ONLY WHEN I FALL, is adult upmarket fiction with elements of suspense.
Ernie earned the Top Adult Contemporary honor in Query Kombat and is a former Pitch Wars mentee. He is also a current Pitch Wars committee member and mentor, now co-mentoring with his former mentor, Kristen Lepionka, Shamus Award-winning author of THE LAST PLACE YOU LOOK, WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE, and THE STORIES YOU TELL from St. Martin’s Press/Minotaur Books.
Ernie is passionate about giving back to the writing community, and is constantly boosting other writers’ work. When he’s not writing or mentoring, he enjoys doing freelance graphic design, playing with his kids, painting, binge-watching Netflix shows, and reading every book he can lay his hands on.
