The Occupational Tourist


This is the story of Clovis Marshall, a man who lived through the best and the worst of our times - a philanthropist and innovator - a candy store man, who dabbled on the side with anchovies and robotics, but whose main goal was to bring back a piece of history to the concrete forest now known as the island of Manhattan - New York 1920's from Burlesque, Chinese Tongs, and the Jewish Mafia, to Castro’s Cuba of the 60’s and the CIA Dulles men in black to the heralding in of a new century ~ life through the ages ~ something to have survived.

Available now in Paperback: $10.99

QUOTE: "I always enjoy Erika WainDecker's books and The Occupational Tourist is no exception. The cover of the book is a great representation of the book, not to mention that a cover that good has to have an equally good book inside it. The life of the protagonist, Clovis Marshall, is both thought-provoking and insightful, delivered in a fascinating historical context. The book has a very nice and easy pace about it, and is a good solid read. I really enjoyed it.!"

Subject: 5.0 out of 5 stars - Poetry that touches the heart

" Shadow People is a compilation of deeply Richland touching prose. My favorite poem is l'esprit. This poem moves like day moves to night. It reminds me of the sway of a weeping willow in the darken sky. I look for poems and stories with a bit of a dark side and yet open to deep thought. I found this in these poems and in how the writer established the settings. Moving, reachable and memorable!!!!! If you're looking for poetic stories, this is the book to read. This book will lay on your bedside table begging to be picked up now and again, read and re-read."

Available now in Paperback: $10.50 or Kindle: $7.99

Subject: Puts the thrill back in thriller!

"E. WainDecker's thriller, A Time for Grace, has more twists and turns than a Swiss Alps mountain road, with each story plot begging you to find out who did what to whom and why? She expertly maneuvers the reader through sexy locations and sexier characters with a kind of James Bond meets Agatha Christie flare. I really enjoyed the challenge of figuring out what motivated a character to behave or misbehave the way they did. And the food descriptions are mouthwatering. I would highly recommend it as a stocking stuffer for an armchair traveler who enjoys the good life, gourmet food and a challenging crime or two."

The Man Froom Yorkshire


A factual Canadian/World history spun into an intriguing fictionalized narrative novella exploring one man’s life from the late 1890’s to present; steeped in politico-industrial espionage. What are fables but stories based on truths, all relative to Time and Space, elusive and yet, to quote my readers:
    - “A historical setting told in perfect tone.”
    -“It is an intriguing book! … really about the never-ending and changing relationships of lives and events. A good read!”
    -“Take an adventure.”

And I agree, why not indeed.
