About Me

My Photo
My name is not really Erica Stevens, it is a pen name that I chose in memory of two amazing friends lost too soon.I was born in New York and moved to Mass as a child. I spent my time growing up between NY and Mass so I have some interesting times when sports games roll around. I was fortunate enough to marry my best friend over two years ago and I don't know what I'd do without him. I have a large, crazy, fun loving family that just loves to laugh. My parents are the strongest people I know. I have an older brother and sister, and a younger sister, who have blessed me with many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. I am nowhere near as old as the great nieces and nephews make me sound. I love to read and have wanted to be a writer since I was nine years old.

  11. Kindred is the best book series I've ever read and I'm so glad your making a 5th. when I read the end of the forth saying caddie died and Devon lost it I was about to break down crying. now that I know it's not the end I'm so happy! I hope it's a long book series. this book is the best and your the most talented writer of all time. as long as you don't end up in movies. some books are ment to read, not to be on a screen. but I hope that you make more than 5. I don't live near any friends so I spend my time reading. this book takes me into another world and makes me so happy.I can't wait to read the 5th and hopefully more of the kindred series. I would do anything to read more of kindred

    1. Thank you Maya! I'm glad you enjoyed them so much it means a lot! The next book will be the last in the kindred series though, but I plan on writing many more books!

  12. I'm the kind of person that when I pick up a book that captures me I can't put it down. I picked up kindred and read it, within an hour of finishing I'd purchased and lost myself in Ashes. I've now read all four. I was captivated by the story and the characters. Though I can't help but wonder why Joey is still tied when he has telekinesis and could probably untie himself but perhaps he thought it safer to obey. You actually bought tears to my eyes more than once, not an easy feat. I really look forward to the next book.

    1. Devon used his mind control powers on joey so he couldn't use his telekinesis, hope this clears it up

  13. Do you think that the Kindred Series books will become a movie series because i would love to be able to see these books in live screen.

    I can't wait until the 5th book in the series comes out. I was almost in tears when i finished book 4 and really want to know what happens.

  23. I have read all the kindred books (apart from the fifth obviously) and I really want to know what will happen to Devon. Cassie cannot really be dead right? I really want to know.
    By the way I think you are a really talented writer. All your series are brilliant. I cannot wait for all the endings to be published.

  24. Mrs. Stevens, you are a true inspiration, im making my dad buy me book 1-4 of the kindred series and 1-2 of the Ravening series. I cried at the end of book 4 of the kindred series, I couldn't believe it, i got strange looks for crying on my bus for poor Cassie. You're the inspiration I needed to be a better writer, I'm best at poems but I've been trying stories and it wasn't going well until I read you're books :) Thank you for being a great role model for me!

  27. OMGoodness Erica, I am soooooo waiting for book 4 of Captive and NOW book 5 of Kindred... I can not believe for one second that Cassie is dead, I'm thinking we were living one of Melissa's visions, so now I am dying to find out.... PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEE hurry... this waiting is killing me...
    You are absolutely very talented. I really appreciate your work. I have never really been a reader of books, but I started with the Captive Series and could not put them down. Then when left hanging on that series I moved on to Kindred, thinking, hoping that the series was complete, BUT, I totally loved it, I just have a really hard time waiting for the ending....
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVED them.
    Thanks again....

  30. Hi. I have been reading your 'Kindred' series via Kindle. I have enjoyed the escapism they provide. However, I have noticed a number of errors in the text. Whether this is just from the translation to a format that allows reading on a Kindle or an oversight of your editor I don't know. Just thought I'd let you know.

  36. I came across your books because I was browsing through the supernatural genre on my kindle. I tried the first book in the Captive series and I loved it. I downloaded the free version of Kindred and I finished it within three hours. I bought the remaining three books the following day. I'm currently reading Inferno and I can't put it down. While there have been several typos, they haven't detracted from the novels so far. I'm impressed. I'm on pins and needles for the final installment of this series. These books are like entertaining black holes...they suck you in and you lose track of time. I love it!!!

    1. I may do something with Julian in the future but it wouldn't be for awhile as my next project after the third Ravening is Jack's story from the Captive Series.
