This is the story of starting a new life in a modern America no one could have imagined before it occurred.
Mark Twain said:
“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.”
Eric’s on a journey, a journey through modern America, living his 21st Century adult fairy tale existence with Freud, his full-grown French bulldog, barking at his heels every step of the way. A journey means moving on, change, and after years of loss, is Eric ready for change? And there’s a lot of change to catch up on ~ re-imagination and re-invention are rife all around him in an America that’s changing almost faster than he can adapt.
Despite being faced with a sea of “modern” people: e-people, gamesters, the simply weird, the duplicitous, liars, thieves, hustlers, the cheats of the modern world, despite these times of division, with modern America at war with itself, despite all that’s in the past, “memories”, Eric’s gonna move forward ~ ain’t no stopping him now.
As yesterday drifts away, and tomorrow becomes today, The Barking Dog series begins, and journeys forward.

About the Author
After a lifetime spent in his native New York Eric Paul Lee now resides in beautiful, tropical, Miami, Florida. Born in Brooklyn and raised in Coney Island, Eric often wandered the Boardwalk in his childhood. Eric frequently wasted his allowance at the now demolished Steeplechase Park and the other dated, dowdy and declining amusements that defined Coney Island… and much of traditional society… back then. The traditional was still IN back then. And the traditional like Coney Island had seen its glory days, its heyday, long passed. But the new hadn’t arrived yet. Just the old was fading… And so the forms still had to be obeyed. And with that Eric’s parent’s obeyed those forms and Eric was dispatched to college in Upstate NY to return to Brooklyn some four years later. Upon graduation from college Eric bounced from job to job until the Graphic Arts caught his creative eye and a new career began. With his first graphics production position under his belt Eric moved in to Manhattan some two years later never to live in Brooklyn again. Success built on success as corporate stints in California brought about even greater successes leading to Eric’s eventual New York City return and the opening of his own Graphics Agency in Manhattan. That enterprise ran successfully for over twenty years. Now out of industry entirely, Eric is happy to enjoy the perpetual Florida sun and write.
