Eric A. Radulski
Eric Radulski was born in Illinois in 1975, where he spent the first few weeks of his life in an incubator. Two months premature, it immediately became apparent that Eric was in a hurry - a state in which he remains to this day. A great deal of his childhood and early adulthood were spent in Macedon, NY. While living there, he often dreamed of making movies. During high school, he discovered that what he really wanted to do was write. The Belgariad by David Eddings is directly to blame.
His first novel - a pulpy fantasy novel entitled The Dark Spires - was written soon after Eric finished his junior year in high school. Alas, The Dark Spires, coauthored by Eric with a childhood friend, was not destined to see the light of day. It now molders in the corner of an attic somewhere... either in Macedon, NY - home of Eric’s parents - or in California, current home of Eric’s previously mentioned childhood friend.
Eventually, Eric went to college in Albany, NY. During his stint there - majoring in English and Philosophy - Eric wrote The Shadow of the Crimson Queen - a short story - and began writing his sophomore novel, a tale entitled Revenant. The Shadow of the Crimson Queen can now be found online. Alas Revenant remains, as yet, unfinished... not to say that it will stay that way forever.
Immediately after viewing The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Eric decided to hunker down and get serious about his own writing again. Heavily influenced at that time by Clive Barker’s Books of Blood, David Eddings’ The Belgariad, and Peter Jackson’s vision of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, he began the The Hands of Aldulan Trilogy that year. The trilogy was completed in 2007.
Currently, Eric is writing short stories, outlining his next series, and working on various audio projects.
He lives in Rochester, NY with his family.
