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. He enjoys writing about people with complex lives and hardened exteriors—people we’d pass on the street without a second glance.

Ernie is currently an assistant to agent Tricia Skinner at Fuse Literary, serves as the Pitch Wars Communications Director, and co-mentors in the Pitch Wars Adult category with Kristen Lepionka, Shamus Award-winning author of the Roxane Weary mystery series 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.

Ernie is represented by agent Michelle Richter at Fuse Literary. For more information, feel free to reach out to him directly via email.

You can also find Ernie messing around on twitter, facebookinstagram, and goodreads.
