I was born and raised in West Mitten, USA. I still live in the area with my wife of 34 years, Therese, and together we raised two sons, Eric Jr. and Nicholas. I spent most of my adult life working as an electrician and service technician in the telecommunications industry, with side interests in computers and video production. I have written and self-published three novels, SEAMS16:A New Home, SEAMS16:Arrival, and And So It Begins... I have also self-published two children's stories, Sam and the Dragon and Billy's Family.
