Eric grew up in Brooklyn, New York, and lives there today. The first things he ever published were YA short stories dealing with all sorts of weirdness, and he’s also been a contributor to both literary and research publications since his time at the University at Buffalo, where he studied English and Psychology.

Eric’s non-author background is diverse, as he’s experienced in service, higher-ed, neuroscience lab work, financial compliance, and the US Government (technically making him a former federal agent) but his favorite labor, by far, has always been making compelling stories where everything comes together.

When away from his keyboard (the non-musical one) Eric enjoys a great deal of gaming, reading, running, joking and teaching new tricks to his cat, Aminal, who now high-fives humans consistently.
