static1.squarespaceErica L Moffett is a freelance writer when she is not working at her day job as Managing Director & Associate Director of Equity Research at Oppenheimer or swimming in the pools, rivers, or oceans.

Erica from America: Swimming from Europe to Africa is her first children’s book and it is based on her own swim from Europe to Africa, which is was one of her first big open water swims. Subsequently she went on to swim the English Channel, the Manhattan Island Marathon Swim, and the Catalina Channel, along with a few others (though those are the big ones). More Erica from America books are planned, though they may involve some other adventure other than swimming.

She is also working on a memoir about her own adoption experience and going back to to search for her birth family (see the section “Are You My Mother?” for a preview), and when she has the time, she also writes reviews for www.womanaroundtown.com (and just for fun!).
