Eddie has been writing for over thirty years, since he first got his hands on his father's IBM AT computer in the early 1980's at the ripe old age of twelve. In 2011, Eddie realized it was either publish or go home, and so he has begun offering his books in this new and unique reader's environment with EBooks and Print, as well as future efforts in Audio Books, Film Shorts and other entertainment services.
Eddie's primary publishing efforts from 2012 through 2020 will be with his various Children's Contemporary Fantasies. These stories feature uplifting and adventuresome tales of faeriefolk interacting with humans. Most books and short stories attempt to illustrate a moral for our youth and encourage open-mindedness and tolerance among people, and in these cases among various species. The books appeal to youth and adults alike and make for good family readings.
For adults, Eddie does have more stories in store as well, generally in the supernatural, horror or Sci-Fi genres.
The following are some of Eddie's currently available tales, including the adult stories.
The Old Silk Hat: A Frosty The Snowman Prequel. The first short story Eddie made public. First public appearance of IPMA (Institute for the Preservation of Magical Artifacts).

A heart-warming tale of love for the family at Christmas time. AVAILABLE HERE & other retailers, digital and in print.

He opened his eyes one last time and looked at the pebble on the floor with tired eyes. He mumbled the spell casually. “Baeroc.” And it burst. Two halves went flying into opposite corners of the room with a small crack and then a rattle of stone being tossed on stone. Upon the floor where the pebble had sat were a couple glowing embers in the dark, and Ricky could just catch a few tiny broken pieces left behind by the two halves. He had done it. Breakroc was now his spell to command.
