Over the past decade, Karl Bjorn Erickson has written more than fifty articles. His publishing credits include America, The National Catholic Weekly, Catholic Answer's This Rock, Musica Sacra, the Statesman Journal, the Portland Tribune, Seattle Pacific University's Response, Catholic365.com, and many more! His articles explore a wide range of challenging topics, but he especially enjoys writing on the arts and faith.
Karl has also written several books: Tristan's Travels, Toupee Mice, and The Blood Cries Out (not a children's book!). In addition to these books, he's also fond of experimenting with new eBook formats--e.g. Oregon, My Oregon, A Photographic Journey: The Wallowas. (He describes this series as electronic coffee table books.)
He's indeed a man of many talents. From late 2013 through the first half 2014, Karl was even political candidate for Oregon's 20th House District. While he didn't enjoy politics quite as much as he expected...he still loves photographing Oregon's beautiful outdoors. Of course, all of this is on the side of his day job. Karl has been a State of Oregon employee since 1997. He's also active within his local Catholic parish.
