Eric Locsh is a writer and digital marketing copywriter based in New Jersey. He found his inspiration to be a writer from listening to the stories his father told when he was a child. Growing up in a relatively quiet suburban neighborhood afforded Eric the opportunity to create unusual places he could only dream of visiting, until now.
Before realizing he wanted to be a writer, he explored many different fields in college; studying accounting; geology; teaching; before ultimately landing at print journalism.
Eric wrote the first draft of The Tower of Blue entirely by hand. He thinks this practice creates a more personal approach to storytelling, allowing the story a greater opportunity to connect with readers. Reflecting on past mistakes, old ideas, being able to look back on how your writing has improved can all get lost on the screen.
The Tower of Blue is Eric’s first novel.
