My name is Eric Pierce, though I write under my initials: E.W. Pierce. I write Fantasy and Science Fiction stories, sometimes with an element of horror. I’ve been writing on-and-off for eleven years.
I work in corporate IT as a programmer. I played the promotion game for a while, chasing money and prestige at the cost of sanity and happiness. I gave that up four years ago, and am happily slinging code again. Not inconsequentially, I am also writing more. The sojourn into management wasn’t a complete loss: my project management skills came in handy during the anthology.
I am happily married to my High School sweetheart. We celebrated our 15th anniversary this past summer. We have 2 kids, boy (10) and girl (7). Young enough that we still have action figures and barbies, hot wheels and bed-time stories. But old enough that I can glimpse the end of innocence and it makes me incredibly sad.
Sometimes we talk about having a 3rd. And then we come to our senses.
