About Erik

Writer, Cybersecurity Professional, DJ, Fiddler Crab


Author of Science Fiction and Fantasy

Erik has been creating stories since he could read and write. Encouraged by high-school writing and literature teachers, he decided to become a professional author one day. That day, as it turns out, just happened to be over thirty five years later. He is now a short story author and is threatening to write a novel. He enjoys public speaking on panels because he can carry on and on and people are less likely to run away.

Erik is a graduate of Taos Toolbox.

Erik currently lives in the Boston area, but has not yet been to Arkham, Massachusetts. 

Erik is an Associate member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).

Erik thinks referring to himself in the third person is strange and is getting tired of starting sentences with ‘Erik.’

My First Book

Erik thinks it was Hop on Pop. That is, he read it, he didn’t write it.
