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.
