The author of the books Erika's Story and Mississippi Morning, teacher and writer Ruth Vander Zee has always had a love of stories. However, it was not until 1995 that she began writing her stories down on paper. As a child, Vander Zee listened to her father's tales, and she continued in the family tradition by making up her own stories to entertain her cousins. When she grew up she continued the habit, entertaining her own three children with original tales. At age forty she returned to college to earn her degree in education. After being a middle-school teacher for several years, she finally decided to put her words on paper, first by writing curriculum, then by writing picture books. She is currently substitute teaching in the Miami Dade public school system.
