About Erik Hanberg

Erik Hanberg has been a writer all his life. Novels, screenplays, plays, even a stray poem or two. He lives in Tacoma Washington with his wife Mary and his new daughter. In addition to writing novels, he was elected in 2011 as a park commissioner on the park board of Tacoma.

The Lattice Trilogy

Byron Shaw can track and find anyone on Earth. Except the people who tried to kill him.

By 2081, privacy no longer exists. The Lattice enables anyone to re-live any moment of your life. People can experience past and present events—or see into the mind of anyone, living or dead.

Most people love it. Some want to destroy it.

Colonel Byron Shaw has just saved the Lattice from the most dangerous attack in its history. Now he must find those responsible. But there’s a question nobody’s asking: does the Lattice deserve to be saved?

The answer may cost him his life.

Arthur Beautyman Mysteries

The Saints Go Dying (2010), The Marinara Murders (2011), and The Con Before Christmas (2012) are about Arthur Beautyman, a computer hacker turned detective. All three books can be easily enjoyed as stand-alone mysteries.

Helping Small (and Very Small) Nonprofits

Based on his years of nonprofit fundraising, marketing, and leadership, Hanberg published "The Little Book of Gold," a fundraising guide for small (and very small) nonprofits and The "Little Book of Likes," a social media guide for small (and very small) nonprofits.

When he was just 23, Erik Hanberg was hired to run a non-profit arts organization with an annual budget just over $600,000. Two years later, he had increased the budget to $800,000, and increasing fundraising more than 400%.

Since then he has worked in development at multi-million dollar non-profit, and has volunteered on many boards.

He was most recently the Executive Director of a small civic non-profit and currently sits on the distribution committee for a foundation that gives away more than $200,000 a year.
