Eric J Ehlers wrote his first story age age 3 about a UFO that didn’t invade Earth because a small, barking dog scared them away. He’s been writing ever since, and in the last three decades has shown a modicum of improvement. Eric has previously edited and had his writing featured in the Leading Edge and The Official Time-Waster’s Guide. Currently he’s living the dream of being surrounded by beautiful women — most of them are his daughters. The cat sympathizes when he’s not killing small woodland animals.

You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.” — Neil Gaiman
