About the author

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Eric Robert Nolan graduated from Mary Washington College in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.  He began his career as an investigative reporter for newspapers in Virginia, and later became a grants, public relations and speech writer for nonprofit healthcare organizations.

Eric’s debut novel is the postapocalyptic science fiction story, The Dogs Don’t Bark in Brooklyn Any More, published by Dagda Publishing in the United Kingdom in 2013.  His writing has been featured throughout 35 print and online publications in the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, Australia and India.  These include Quail Bell Magazine, Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine, Illumen, The Fifth Di, The Free Lance-Star and The Daily Progress.

Eric’s writing was also selected for eight anthologies: Dagda Publishing’s Threads in 2013 and All Hail the New Flesh in 2014; Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine’s 2016 Anthology, 2017 Anthology and 2018 Anthology; and Down in Dirt’s poetry collections The Flickering Light in 2019, Outside the Box in 2020 and Inside the Box in 2020.  Two of his poems were included in Newington Blue Press’ 2020 chapbook, Buk 100: My Old Man, A Birthday Greeting.  Several of his poems and flash fiction horror tales were published in mini-book format in 2017 by Poems-for-All.

Eric’s science fiction/horror story, “At the End of the World, My Daughter Wept Metal,” was nominated for the Sundress Publications 2018 Best of the Net Anthology.  The following year, Every Writer’s Resource named his poem “The Writer” as one of EWR’s Best of 2019.  One of his most popular poems to date is an anti-Trump short satirical piece that was “liked” by more than 8,000 people and was retweeted in 2019 by George Conway, a founder of The Lincoln Project Super PAC.

Eric is a past editor for the dystopian arts and literature journal, The Bees Are Dead.  He has been interviewed on Blog Talk Radio, by Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine, by Bunbury Magazine and by Spillwords Press.  In 2013, his writing was featured in the University of Mary Washington Magazine.

Eric will always be a New Yorker at heart, but currently resides in his adopted Virginia, where he enjoys drinking coffee and occasionally glimpsing a falcon, fawn or fox among the high and clay-colored Alleghenies.

    1. Thanks, Dave! 🙂 It’s been great fun catching up with you recently, and it’s great for me to see an old friend and classmate succeeding with his own business. I wish you continued good luck!

      2. Oh my GOD! Adam!! I can’t believe it is actually you!! I have tried to find you, your brother and Shawn on social media for years!! Would you believe that all three of you guys have somewhat common names? (I’m thinking “Huhn” is either German or Dutch?) How the heck are ya!! Of COURSE I remember telling ghost stories with you guys under the porch! It is one of the things that made me want to become a horror writer — I talked about it in one of the interviews I did after my novel was published!! I mentioned you guys in a recent blog post too: https://ericrobertnolan.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/this-makes-me-think-of-shawn-degnan-jason-huhn-and-adam-huhn-and-telling-ghost-stories-under-the-porch/

  2. 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.
