An aircraft engineer, logistician, and former corporate executive, Eric Alagan is also a keen observer of people.

Like many self-taught authors, Eric flowed with his muse and wrote thrillers, humour and even non-fiction. His writing gravitated to his passion for history and interest in geopolitics.

Now, he focuses on historical fiction rich in convoluted plots.

Eric’s novels draw from historical facts; myths; legends; and mores of the times. His stories fill with realism and transports the reader to experience life as it was in centuries past.

To give his muse an avenue for expression, Eric uses this blog. He writes flash fiction, haiku and verse in all genres.

He spends a typical day, reading, researching, writing, and revising his manuscripts.


He is also an exercise junkie and enjoys his daily walk-a-jogs. He loves road-biking. But after his 90-year-old grandma beat him in a cycling race, he stays away from road-biking.

He wanted to take up sky-diving but Grandma beat him to it too—she already has 84 jumps to her credit including 12 free-falls from 15,000 feet. Grandma is also into rock-climbing, lumber-jacking and scuba-diving.

Eric has decided that he will simply try to out-live her.

  1. Hello, Eric, and thanks for stopping by on my blog. Seems we have quite a bit in common. I also work in business and consultancy, and have written articles and books in that field for many years now. But I feel the need to have a more creative outlet, so, like you, I am experimenting, writing, sharing, just keeping the creative habit alive! Look forward to reading more from you. Good luck with your exploration!

    1. Dear Anil,

      Stephanie is a lovely and loving person. I am not surprised she nominated you for this award. Reading your story…you are one tough family and living in HIS arms.

      Thank you for thinking of me. God bless and peace, Eric

    1. Dear Madam Anonymous 🙂

      Thank you for this honour. I bow and accept with all luv.

      One of your admirers who has taken a number and waiting so far back in line 🙂

  3. Eric, I followed you back from a ‘like’ on one of my poems (thank you).
    It’s quite a surprise to find a poet/engineer. 🙂
    Your blog is so lovely! I’m new to blogging and especially appreciate your formatting.
    Thank you for all your work and especially your sweet words to your wife.

  4. Dear Eric,
    You know that women most of the time like to know a lot about someone, even if it is not their business. I am no exception therefore I have nominated you for this challenge so that my curiosity finally can be satisfied, read this:http://wp.me/p1ZC80-GN 😀
    Love and hugs

    1. Oh, now would you… 🙂

      Hmmm…okay, let me post after Valentine’s because I’m behind on my poems, as you know.

      Meanwhile, lots of hugz from a friend, Eric 🙂

    1. Dear Anil,
      No worries. I suppose you are like me – post a comment on another’s blog only when you have something worth saying.

      I usually tick “like” to let them know that I visited – unless it is a post I do not fancy (for me, vulgarities is a definite turn-off). Many bloggers, especially the start-ups, need the encouragement of a small tick – and I have discovered some very interesting bloggers who hardly have hits.

      God bless you and your lovely family,

    1. Congratulations on winning this award. As you know, I have been reading your posts for sometime now and you well deserve this.

      Thank you also for passing on this award to me. I really appreciate this and accept.

      All good wishes,

  5. Thank you Eric for subscribing to my blog. I am very honored and have enjoyed your posts tremendously and found your writings to be inspirational.
    I thank you friend.

    1. You are very welcome.
      I know I will continue to enjoy your posts – keep writing from your heart.
      Thank you also for your kind words about my posts.
      Your friend, Eric 🙂

  6. Hey, Thanks for ‘liking’ my limerick. I see from the comments that you are generous with your affirmation, and it comes right back to you :-). Best wishes, and hope you’ll stop by again. I’m pretty new at this, but looks like you are a pro, so will be stopping by to learn from you.

  7. G’day from “downunder” Eric,
    Hope all is well with you?

    Our esteemed colleague Dennis Lange, The Venerable Bard of Texas, roped me into this and I, being the sweet guy I am, now pass the baton on. It’s a game called “Plague or Play”.

    Please visit “It’s th’ plague, bring out yer dead!” [ http://steeltee.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/its-th-plague-bring-out-yer-dead/ ] at SteelTee and join in. It’s nothing serious, just a bit of social fun, no charge, no obligation and no prizes…
    Kind regards,

  8. Eric,
    Thank you so much for reading my poetry, it really does mean a lot to me as an aspiring writer. By reading my poems, I feel like someone out there really enjoys them!
    Again, thank you so much!

    1. Dear Forvitni,

      Keep writing poetry…from your heart and you’ll be alright and even proud (though this aspect, treat with less respect)

      All good wishes,

  9. hey…thank you for the words you wrote for me. they reminded me of a thought i started to write a couple years ago but it keeps fleeing..ya know. its called “tip toe through the roses” that’s all i got…i know there’s something else there just can’t keep the thought…so i’ll wait until it keeps me. thanks again, peace be

I like to hear your thoughts
