I am the great and powerful Oz! Well no. Actually, My name is Erik Parkin. I am an aspiring writer. I am also a reader. I read a lot, anything from histories to biographies, mysteries and science fiction. My favorite genre is fantasy. It is the the perfect vessel to use to plumb the depths of imagination. Ever since I was a child I have been engrossed in the works of Tolkien, Asimov, and Brooks. I am also a fan of L Frank Baum’s The Wizard Of Oz. Their works have always fired my imagination and left within me a burning desire to write. So, I am writing. I like to write stories about strong characters with whom people can relate, that also serve as a mirror into our society. My goal is to someday become an established author. This site will chronicle my journey as a writer. You can follow my journey through my Blog You can get in touch me through this Contact Form Thanks for your support!
