About Eric Johnson

“What if?”
Eric Johnson would die without this question.
One can, and should, contemplate this question when one is slaved to the phone lines doling out the Golden Rule of the Windows operating system, "Have you rebooted your computer yet?" With this and a handful of progressive questions, he is the deserving title-holder of HERO forty to fifty times a day as he resolves end-user issues. And yet, this is not enough for one man.
When he escapes the clutches of the forty-hour paradigm...
...he gives himself over to family. A father for five years and a husband for approximately forever, he expresses his love for them through nearly-gourmet cooking, wisdom dispensing, and in fits and starts, domicile upkeep.
...he gives himself over to exploration. A veteran of war (dialing), virtual and real photography dark rooms, and bike rides to Hades and back, he has always been a geek. He can easily be lured into conversations about physics, space travel, science fantasy, and occasionally, computers.
...he gives himself over to reading. Books consumed are too numerous to store in any one place, much less catalogue. He still believes in the magic of the printed word, but does possess compassion for the e-reader. He has read the internet…twice. He is an ardent supporter of the mythos that Playboy magazine does have articles. He is willing to read words in any medium, from clay tablets to Fark to fortune cookies (in bed).
…he gives himself over to writing.
Eric will want his readers to know that he is not perfect for he has still not cured cancer. Instead, he invites the reader to join him in the adventure of, “What if?”

Review by: Mandy Oviatt on Jan. 11, 2014 :
Roe is a great story, and a quick read.
While the story seems to shift partway through, the story is wrapped up nicely.

Roe A life in After World
This is a very interesting story that will grab your attention right from the start. The characters are well thought out and interesting, and you will care about what happens to them. Although it feels towards the middle like you are suddenly reading a completely different story, you aren't and the author ties things up nicely. Overall I enjoyed reading this unique story.

Review by: Martin Allen on July 09, 2013 :
Whilst a book that seemed separated into two halves this did not detract from the overall readability, which does maintain attention and focus. The halves are both integral to the whole in terms of character development and exploring various themes of power and morality.

Review by: Syvannah Tewes on July 09, 2013 :
After world was a refreshingly new and different kind of book for me. Long a fan of many Of the elements, I got to witness them being out together in a new way. The characters were well written, the dialogue realistic, the setting believable. If I were able to give more than five stars I would. Well worth a place on your shelf for a lifetime. Can't wait to read more from this author!
