Former student Eric Walters published the third book in a series as 2019 came to a close and is still amazed by his work. He says of the experience, “A self-published author? Me? In the fall of 2019, I published third book, My Life With Lukas (On Topanga Canyon Boulevard); Best Kid Ever. The book is part of a series and tells the story of a thirty-something high school physics teacher who steps up to parent his teenage nephew as they search for meaning in their lives as well as a new definition of family. The book series is the basis for the TV pilot: Best Kid Ever.”
Eric has taken numerous classes with the Writers’ Program, but one stands out for him. “The class that changed my life: Flash Fiction. That’s where I found my writing niche. The feedback I received from the instructor, Mieke Eerkens, gave the confidence to take chances with my writing. My writing has continued to evolve in the four years since that course.”
