Ed strives to create a profound experience for his readers. His books don’t always fit neatly into one category or another. His goal is to touch his readers with conflict, tragedy, comedy, irony, and plenty of surprises.
Ed pulls from his unique background, observations, and creative ideas to bring his readers into the past — and the future. After high school, he lived in St. Louis’ Gaslight Square entertainment district where he encountered numerous sources of inspiration that have helped develop his beloved characters.
He has a master’s in English Literature/Creative Writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a B.A. in English, with a minor in history, from the University of Hawaii — West O’ahu. He lives in St. Louis, Missouri, and is a member of the St. Louis Writers Guild and Missouri Writers Guild.
Ed’s novels include The Antiquities Dealer: A David Greenberg Mystery, being released Nov. 5, and his Civil War-era Darkhorse Trilogy: The Lies That Bind, Honor Among Outcasts, and in 2019, Something in Madness.
