Erika Holzer received her B.S. from Cornell University and her law degree from New York University.

For several years following her admission to the New York bar, she practiced constitutional and appellate law with Henry Mark Holzer. Their clients included Soviet dissidents and defectors, and other lawyers for whom they prepared appellate briefs and Petitions for Certiorari for the Supreme Court of the United States.

One of the Holzer firm’s clients (and later friend) was the novelist, Ayn Rand. Because of Rand’s literary influence, Erika Holzer switched careers from law to writing.

With Henry Mark Holzer, she co-authored “Aid and Comfort”: Jane Fonda in North Vietnam, proving that Jane Fonda’s trip to Hanoi during the Vietnam War, and her activities there, constituted constitutional treason.

Again with Henry Mark Holzer, Erika co-authored Fake Warriors: Identifying, Exposing, and Punishing Those Who Falsify Their Military Service. Her other non-fiction writing consists of essays, articles, reviews, political and legal commentary.

In addition, Erika is author of the book Ayn Rand: My Fiction-Writing Teacher: A novelist’s mentor-protégé relationship with the author of Atlas Shrugged.

Holzer’s most recent short story, Eyewitness, appears in Scout & Engineer, available on Kindle and most other eBook readers and through

Author Nelson DeMille has said about Erika Holzer’s novel, Eye for an Eye, that it is “a serious and disturbing look at street gangs, urban violence, the criminal justice system, and vigilantism. Erika Holzer, an attorney, has created a plot from what could be any newspaper headline and carried it a step further. Her characters are vividly created, impassioned, and interestingly flawed so that we relate to them. Highly recommended. A sort of American Clockwork Orange.”

Holzer’s Eye for an Eye became a Paramount Pictures feature film starring Sally Field and Kiefer Sutherland.
