It all began in 1993 when Eric was teaching a Grade 5 class. His students were reluctant readers and writers and Eric began to write to encourage them to become more involved in literature. His first novel, Stand Your Ground
was created for this class. It is set in the school where Eric was teaching, Vista Heights Public School, and some of the features of the community of Streetsville and many of the names of his students were incorporated into the story.
Since this first novel Eric has literally exploded on the children's/young adult literature scene. Over the following years he has published thirty-two more novels with more scheduled for the coming years.
Eric lives in Mississauga with his wife and children.
