About Me


In the wake of a recent change to this site I looked through some of the pages and stumbled across this, my About Me page. Wow. It must have been three years since I wrote the stink that filled this page and I knew I had to change that right away or I would not be able to look myself in the mirror and call myself a writer. With that being said, here we go.

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 four books with another one on the way. I write book reviews and share little tidbits of my life along the way.

Writing is not all that I do though. I work in IT and do a little web design on the side, but believe it or not there is even more to me than my passion and my job.

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 Christian that believes in science and following the example set by Jesus rather than some odd evolution (see what I did there) of the faith that has publicly strayed from its beginnings.

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, but that is why I’m a writer. You can learn for 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.

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

  2. Glad you’re here in the blog trenches–it’s a great place to write and ruminate and learn from a ton of really terrific and generous people! Welcome to the company. Hope you have as much fun with this as I’m having.
