Eric Nierstedt grew up in central New Jersey, raised on a healthy diet of TV, comic books, and way, way too many books.

The first draft clocked in a record nine pages (thankfully, high school is four years).

That way, when I do get stuck in a chapter, I know that there is another scene that I have thought out and can work on. So I'll work on that scene, and then usually be ready to tackle the block.(less)

“I took ‘em because nobody else had found ‘em yet. I brought ‘em here ta be protected from mortals that didn’t know the kinda power they once had, that might try ta unlock it again.”
Eric Nierstedt, SHADOW PANTHEON

“She turned back to the spot where Kamala had been, and where the bow she'd held still was. Andrea walked over to it and picked it up. She ran her hands over it gently, feeling the intricate designs carved into it, the elegance of the metal guard. Andrea held it out before her and pulled the string back.

“The man you are seeing is no man, Andy. He was Odin Borson, Allfather and King of Asgard. His wolves were Freki and Geri and his hall was Valhalla. He was my father and the father of many others. And he was your father.”
