Eric Schumacher - Bestselling Author of Viking Age Historical Fiction
I exist in the space between the medieval past and the not-so-distant future. By day, I am a brand storyteller and PR professional who runs a boutique PR agency called Neology Marketing Communications. By night (or frankly any free time I can find), I wander into the past, using known history and fiction to create stories about people living in turbulent times. While I understand my interest in the future, I have no explanation for my fascination with the past. It is more than an interest — it is a calling.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, hardly the epicenter of medieval history. Yet even from the earliest age, I can remember devouring books about castles and warrior kings and Tolkien's Middle Earth. That fascination, coupled with a love of writing, led me to the completion of a bestselling historical fiction trilogy set in the Viking Age. The novels tell the story of the 10th century Norwegian king, Hakon Haraldsson (or Hakon the Good): God's Hammer, Raven's Feast, and War King.
But I am more than an author. I am the husband to an incredible wife and the father to two amazing kids. I am also an avid skier, beach-goer, a recovering triathlete, and an amateur environmentalist.
