Eric Praschan

Biography

I love suspense fiction books like an addiction. I live in Missouri with my fabulous wife, Stephanie. I hold a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Theological Studies. My favorite authors range from Stephen King to C.S. Lewis. After testing the waters with drama, music, and teaching, I discovered my greatest passion was writing. I've been writing for more than 20 years, focusing on suspense fiction.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I remember reading was The Hardy Boys The Tower Treasure. The mystery, intrigue, and suspense of the brothers' detective work and interaction captivated me. I recall reading many books in The Hardy Boys series and thinking to myself, "I want to write these kind of books one day."
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was an action thriller entitled Icefort. I was twelve years old and enthralled with action and suspense stories. The plot of Icefort was over-the-top and ridiculous, and I threw everything into it, including the kitchen sink--car chases, boat chases, airplane chases, even submarine chases. It was fun and invigorating, and the moment I set my pencil down from the wide-rule paper (yes, we still had those things back then), I knew I was hooked and would never stop writing stories.
