Reminds of of when you were small and drawing all the monsters, warriors, guns, etc. I said “Eric, why dont’ you draw something nice and pleasant?” You drew me a beautiful pastoral scene of flowers, grass, bubbling stream and I said, “Now that’s what I mean”. You said, “But Grandma, there’s sharks in that water!” – My Grandma, Virginia Adair
My name is Eric and I like to write.
It’s that simple.
I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and I have a degree in English from Oklahoma State.
Keota High School in Keota, OK created the Eric Dean Award for Creative Writing
My short story, “My Porcelain Monster” was published in Charon Coin Press‘ State of Horror: Illinois anthology available now on Amazon and iTunes, or as an audio book. It was also published in Issue #3 of Creepy Campfire Quarterly by EMP Publishing.
I’ve written and illustrated a children’s book titled The Paintbrush that Just Wanted to Help, and it’s available for free HERE and HERE. In July of 2016, the story was selected for inclusion in a 3rd grade English-language reading textbook in the Philippines (details pending).
and in Oklahoma State University’s Papyrus, Volume 10 (2005).
Thanks for stopping by – I hope you find something you enjoy.
