Erik spent 20 years in the United States Air Force, where he lived all over the world, including Iceland, Germany and in a tent for a year in Saudi Arabia.
Always an artist at heart, he produced many paintings during his adventures. After his service, he settled down with his family (wife, two great daughters, 2 cats and a little white fluff dog) in Iowa. Now he helps people with intellectual disabilities and teaches psychology classes at a local college.
He switched from a paint brush to a pen and is now a horror writer by night.
He has been published by Visionary Press, The Horror Zine, and Crypto and Co, as well as other horror anthologies.
People are saying good things about his stories. "You won't be disappointed."
Escape from your reality for a bit and get scared. It feels good."
