Eric Schumacher was born in Los Angeles in 1968. He is the author of multiple bestselling historical fiction novels and one novella, all set in the Viking Age.

Schumacher'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 ancient 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.

Schumacher now resides in Santa Barbara with his wife and two children.

“We are saying that women -- as a sex -- are not more sinful than men. Women are not more deceivable than men. Women are not less intelligent than men. Women are not more prone to error than men. Women are not more dangerous than men. Women are not more arrogant or domineering than men. Women are not to be viewed with more suspicion than men. All women are born into sin, unrighteous by both nature and choice -- as are all men.”
