I’m Eric. You probably clicked on the “About” link because you are curious to know who I am, what I’ve written, and why on earth I do it. Or perhaps you’ve come here for a picture of a hamster and a rhyming verse. Well, I wouldn’t want to disappoint …
In a land far away lived the young Eric James,
He was often inclined to make overblown claims …
As a child he was small but, (I swear this is true!)
He just covered himself in manure … ‘til he grew.
I’ve had a number of books published, Christmas ones, Halloween ones and Easter ones (check out the book section). All of them have localised versions available, so for example there is “A Halloween Scare in Texas“, “A Halloween Scare in Minnesota” and so on – see most of them here).
I always do my best to ensure there is a solid story behind each book – I have often seen localization used as a gimmick, but there is no reason why stories can’t be localized and decent, as long as they are written with localization in mind! I like to think this is the reason why sales of these book have been so strong. In some titles, like “Halloween Scare” I even wrote completely bespoke localized verses for each book (see the facts below).
