Hello! Erica here. I’m the twenty-something behind this little blog.
I’ve lived in four countries, and in my younger days, fancied myself something of an Indiana Jones. But as I’ve grown a little older and wiser, I’ve realized that life isn’t a bunch of big adventures interspersed with tedious boring periods. Cliche as it sounds, your whole life should be an adventure.
I still have that fascination with traveling, history, and the Middle East, but now I’ve channeled that energy into writing my FIRST BOOK. And honestly, now that I’m a little older, I’m OK with having some of of my adventures behind a keyboard.
I used to dream of being a CIA agent, going to parties in glamorous disguises only to steal top-secret information and make a dramatic escape.
Now I’m like, “I’m a terrible liar, so I’d probably just get myself shot at the party. And even if I did find the information, I’d get lost on my way back to the safe house.”
I’ve always wanted to be a writer too, so I feel like I’m just moving on to the next step of my journey. I spent a few years gathering information for the books, and now it’s time to use all I saw to write them. The one I’m working on now is a Young Adult/Adventure/Chick Lit novel (Is that a genre? It really should be). I’d call the vibe, “Bridget Jones meets Indiana Jones.”
Simply put: this blog is about seeing the adventures in everyday life, and enjoying them as much as you enjoy the planned ones.
Where do you live?: Dallas
Are all the photos on the site yours?: Unless otherwise stated, the photos are mine.
Can I reprint your photos/content?: If you include two links back to Adventures of a Twenty-Something — one to the blog post you’re referencing and one to the home page — sure! I would also ask that you only reprint one photo, and 2-3 paragraphs of text at a max, at a time. Shoot me an email if there’s some reason you need more!
Favorite books?: Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters (I’ve read just about every book Peters has ever written). Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination by Helen Fielding (this is a great example of Indiana Jones meets Bridget Jones).
Can you make your font bigger?: Good news! If you’re on a Mac, you can change your size display with the click of two buttons. Hold command and the + sign, and everything will magically look bigger. To get it back to the way it was, hold command and the – sign, which is just to the left of the plus sign.
