Hi. My name is Eric.

This website is a collection of my unpublished writing. The fiction will most likely be strange, the criticism will most likely focus on movies, and the nonfiction will most likely be few and far between. I called it No Character Is Safe because it’s something I try to remember when writing. No character is safe in a story, and no character should be.

I’m hoping the posts will be varied and revealing enough for you to form your own opinions about my personality, but if you’re looking for a testimonial, here’s a fun story: one time, somebody asked one of my high school teachers what my spirit animal would be. She replied: “Something reptilian, because there’s no natural warmth there.”

I really like that story. It plays well at parties.
