My name is Eric Swett. I’m a writer. I’ll even go so far as to say I’m an author since I have published a book and some short fiction. I am the keeper of this blog and its contents. I originally started this as a place to share my writing, but it has grown into something more. From here I have written three books with more on the way.
Writing is not all that I am. I work in IT, stream videogames, and dabble in 3D printing, but believe it or not there is even more to me than my passion, my job, and my hobbies.
Above all of that I am a husband and father. I have a beautiful wife named Tracy and three fabulous children (Zachary, Connor, and Kaitlyn). Between the four of them I have absolutely everything I really need in this world. If everything else went away and I still had them, I could die and count myself a fortunate man.
I’m a self-proclaimed Geek and I do not adhere to a single form of geekdom. I like roleplaying games, tabletop games with painted miniatures, video games, comic books, science fiction and fantasy, Star Wars, Star Trek and Doctor Who. I could fill up this page with all of the geekery I enjoy, but this short list will suffice for now.
It’s impossible to tell everything about oneself in a single page, and that is why I’m a writer. You can learn far more about me from reading what I write then you will ever learn from reading this, so go to the rest of my blog, have a look and let me know what you think.

Hi Eric! I have a couple Ebooks to send you from the Blog Tour stop today. Can you email me at email@example.com?
Thanks so much for commenting!!
Is there something subconsciously dissatisfying about being an IT professional? I’m finding more and more writers with IT day jobs. I’m one of them. Although I love my day job… consciously, at least.
I guess there are worse habits. If we IT people were all alcoholics, that would be a little more telling.
I tend to think that the IT is a natural fit for writers since as IT proffesionals we have a certain amount of structure we have to adhere to, but ultimately we’re just making things up as we go.
