R. Eric Smith

R. Eric Smith is a graphic designer who lives in Raleigh, NC. He is a lifetime fan of comic books. Despite this, he still learned to read books without pictures. His favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Dan Simmons, George R. R. Martin, Steven Erikson, Ian Esslemont, Isaac Asimov, Elmore Leonard, Donald Westlake, and whoever signs his check.

His interest in writing began when Scott and Joel told him of their participation in NaNoWriMo. He managed to complete a couple of Doctor Who fanfictions and a story about a giant who wanders through myths of other countries to look for a place to raise cattle. With Scott and Joel, Eric developed a comic book series based on characters from their drabbles, Matt and Charlie of Wilder Investigations. The second issue will come out any year now.
