About

Hi, 

I'm Eric Gardner author of God's Will Blood Line.  A bit about me...well...I am a military brat, which means I grew up in a military family, and got to live around the world.  I followed in my father's footsteps and joined the U.S. Army as an Infantry Officer.   After completing my service and wartime commitment I left the Army and became a stay at home dad for my daughters.  A drastic change, but one I wouldn't alter for anything.  My wife is still with the Army so we move around quiet a bit. We call Virginia home for the moment.   

I have always been interested in the Horror genera and Religious Fiction.  Authors like Stephen King, Jeff Long, and Dean Koontz  have been favorites of mine growing up.  Frank Peretti's first book, This Present Darkness has been a long time re-read for me.  But as with anything taste change and now I find that Gave Thorpe,  Dan Abnett and Ben Counter fill my reading lists.  That is when I am not writing more chapters for the Legion Series. 

People ask how the story line came to life, and well to be honest I think the story found me, instead of the other way around, and now it writes itself, leaving me to be a humble scribe.  I have always been interested in the wide scope of Christian Belief.  Being a Christian, I wanted to try to understand everything about it. Allot of what I was exposed to was mind numbing, almost boring.  Having such a military upbringing and career I found the war between light and darkness very intriguing.  And the story I think is  a bi-product of my life merging with my faith.  

God's Will is the first book in the series I have created entitled The Thirteenth Legion.  It is how I see the war against the darkness.  Average people, doing extraordinary things with a little help from the great beyond. Explosions, things going bump in the night, and fast action... it might have it all, but I'll leave that for you to decide.

Description: C.S. Lewis once said there are two extremes which humanity is divided on regarding the devil. The first is to become overly concerned with is influence, and the other is to make him into a myth. For a group of strangers, lead by Gabriel and Othia...

There is a mixture of real angelic names and fictional ones used.  Some of their back stories which come to light in book 4 are based on traditional mythology but there are many gaps where authors can take some wide ranging liberties and still keep their historical tales true to form.  But Semyaza, Abaddon, Uriel (who comes out later) are just some of the ones which are talked about in religious and historical history.  I hope that helps...;-)  Thank you for taking the time to ask... and have a great weekend.

Eric
