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...

They are all out of print at the moment.  I will keep you posted when the books will be available again.  I am trying to find an agent and get the series into the traditional market.  It is proving to be a long road...:-(  But I will keep at it.  To many people want the series for me to stop.  Books 2 and 3 are done, books 4-6 will be done this summer.  It is one awesome roller coaster, I just hope someone in the industry will give it a chance.  Thank you so very much for writing, it means the world to me. Have an awesome weekend!!!

you're to kind.. thank you for such a wonderful compliment.  Books 2 and 3 are in a holding pattern at the moment which I look for an agent to try and get the series picked up.  Books 4-6 should be done by the summer (if I can keep pace).  The series is still very much alive and well, i am just trying to get someone in the traditional market to take notice, but that is a long road, and I am hitting about every roadblock on the way...:-)  thank you again for such a wonderful compliment.  Have a terrific rest of the weekend!!!
