About the author

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Nolan’s weaving of the present and the past was remarkable–because in this action, he has revealed his interest in and his grasp on the psychology of people.  Eric Robert Nolan is a natural. He is deliberate is his storytelling and cinematographic in his descriptions.”  — Book Reviewer Kimi Small, about “The Dogs Don’t Bark In Brooklyn Any More.”

Eric Robert Nolan graduated from Mary Washington College in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.  He spent several years as a news reporter and editorial writer for the Culpeper Star Exponent in Culpeper, Virginia. His investigative work has also appeared on the front pages of numerous newspapers and local magazines in Virginia, including The Free Lance – Star and The Daily Progress.

Eric entered the field of philanthropy in 1997, as a grants, public relations and speech writer for nonprofit healthcare organizations.  His feature writing included articles in Vim and Vigor Magazine, and Eric designed and taught curricula for grant writing training courses for healthcare professionals.

Eric’s debut novel is the postapocalyptic science fiction story, “The Dogs Don’t Bark In Brooklyn Any More.”  It was published by Dagda Publishing on November 19th, 2013, and is available at Amazon.com both in paperback and for Kindle.  This will be the first of a series of books entitled “The Wolf War Saga.”

Eric’s poetry and short stories have been featured by Dagda Publishing, Every Day Poets, Every Day Fiction, Illumen, Under The Bed, Dead Beats Literary Blog, Microfiction Monday Magazine, Dead Snakes, UFO Gigolo, Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine, The Bright Light Cafe, Aphelion, Tales of the Zombie War, Haikuniverse, The International War Veterans’ Poetry Archive, and elsewhere.  His poems were also included in anthology format in Dagda Publishing’s “Threads” in September 2013.  Eric’s science fiction/horror short story, “At the End of the World, My Daughter Wept Metal,” was published in January 2014 in Dagda’s short story anthology, “All Hail the New Flesh.”

Eric currently enjoys partnering with Philippe Atherton-Blenkiron and Dennis Villelmi on “The Bees Are Dead,” a transatlantic webzine devoted to dystopian and post-apocalyptic prose, poetry, art and photography.

Eric will always be a New Yorker at heart, but currently resides in his adopted Virginia, where he enjoys drinking coffee, reciting the poetry of W.H. Auden, and occasionally glimpsing a falcon, fawn or fox among the Allegheny Mountains.

  6. Well aren’t YOU adorable! It seems from the top o’ the page photo that you are a lover of my drug of choice as well (coffee, of course). I, too, have some Irish in my lineage, and am a displaced New Yorker (adoptee) who spent some time on the Virginia side the beltway. (“Shared custody” – lol.)

    From reading this About page, we seem to have more than a few elements in common, including the fact that we are BOTH awake and on the ‘net at going on 2:30 AM Eastern! So I have clicked to follow you (and not just because you followed me first, btw, but thanks for that).

    Congrats on publishing your novel – I LOVE the title! I shall put it on my lengthy reading list based on what little I’ve read of your phrasing and Kimi Small’s review snippet, plus the fact that your descriptions are “cinematographic.” My first career was acting/directing.
