I’m Eric. I write fiction and live in Louisville, Kentucky. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from the Bluegrass Writers Studio at Eastern Kentucky University. (Technically, my degree won’t be conferred until August.) I also have MBA and BA degrees.

I’ll post links to any journals that end up publishing my work. So far none have, but give me a few months, or a year, or ten.


The easiest way to see what’s new with me or what I’m up to is by checking my Instagram. I use my Instagram Story a lot.

I also occasionally post words on my Threads.


I have a Twitter/X account but I don’t use it that much anymore, because there are so many options these days.
