Author Bio

Additional Information

Eric Simmons is a first time author of children's books.

Although writing haven't become natural for me, I was 

inspired years ago. I finally decided after having my son.

I enjoyed seeing his reaction of excitement after reading

to him.

 I didn't find enough books out there that  talked about 

kindness for children so I decided to write one. I grew up 

in New York City. I enter the military at a young age. 

Currently I'm a Nevada resident. I went 

to school at Southern Illinois University were I persued a

career as a commercial pilot. Although I enjoy flying, 

writing is my second passion. I got certified as a NLP 

practitioner. Many would describe me as a workaholic.
