Eric Schumacher was born in Los Angeles in 1968. He is the author of three historical fiction novels, God's Hammer and its sequels, Raven's Feast and War King.
Eric's fascination with Vikings and medieval history began at a young age, though exactly why is not clear. While Los Angeles has its own unique history, there are no destroyed monasteries or Viking burial sites or hidden hoards buried in fields. Still, from the earliest age, he was drawn to books about Viking kings and warlords and was fascinated by their stories and the turbulent times in which they lived. He began writing as a child, though never considered it as a career until he was in his second year of international business school and living in Germany. Poor timing to be sure, but better late than never. It was there that Eric began researching and writing God's Hammer, his first novel. Eric now resides in Santa Barbara with his wife, his two children, and his dog.
