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 and a dusting of magical realism.
It was chosen to take part in PitchWars, which is sort of like The Voice but for novelists. Through Pitch Wars, Ernie was mentored by Kristen Lepionka, author of THE LAST PLACE YOU LOOK and WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE (St. Martin’s Press/Minotaur Books).
He was also selected for another writing competition called Query Kombat, where he earned the Top Adult Contemporary honor for 2017.
When he’s not writing or doing freelance graphic design, Ernie enjoys playing with his kids, painting, binge-watching Netflix shows, and reading every book he can lay his hands on.
