Eric D.

Eric began using his middle initial as a way to distinguish himself from the many other Eric Johnsons of the world, but it mostly just makes him seem pretentious. As such, he’s constantly searching for a pseudonym that won’t offend his mother, even if the name plight is her fault. Writing tends to keep Eric centered (as much as anything can, at least) and he has written about everything from sports to weddings from a local to national level.  Prior to writing, he held a weird assortment of jobs, including spending a few summers as a garbage man (sort of). Send him any story or pseudonym ideas at Oh, and that garbage man thing is completely true (sort of).
