Megan Erickson relied on neighborhood strolls to get her ideas flowing for her first novel. As she pushed her 2-year-old son in his stroller last spring, the Springettsbury Township author would form a scene in her head.

“I rarely sit down and just think, ‘I need to write out this scene,’” Erickson, 29, said. “(The characters) literally just talk in my head, and I try to write it.”

That’s how she wrote the opening scene for “Anchor Me,” released Jan. 2. The novel follows a young woman named Jillian, who owns an aquatics store. Adrift after her brother’s death and betrayed by her ex-boyfriend, Jillian finds out both men had been lying to her.

“I sat down and I wrote it, and it was almost like I couldn’t do anything else,” Erickson said. “Everything in my head, I had to get it down.”
