Erik Scott de Bie has long had a passion for writing that extends back as far as. . . . Hmm. This could get epic.
To make a long story short, Erik writes sword and sorcery, epic fantasy, and a touch of dark fantasy religiously. :)
When he's not busy writing, Erik enjoys reading, hiking, fencing, philosophy, sword collecting, tennis, and more writing. His mortal shell currently abides in Seattle with his lovely wife/fiance/sorceress/personal-angel Shelley, an indeterminate number of pets, and entirely too many books.
