About Eric Newcastle

I have been writing small works of fiction and nonfiction for over twenty years.  Family Values is my first novel, which took about ten years to complete.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from Cal State Los Angeles and a Master’s Degree from UC Riverside.  I am a recently retired public school teacher, after having taught science courses in both middle school and high school for over twenty years.  In more recent years I acted as a club advisor and mentor for gay and lesbian youth.

My hobbies, aside from writing, include reading, gardening, baking bread, and travel.  Twice I took groups of students to Costa Rica, one my favorite places on earth.  In my retirement years I hope to explore more of the world, especially the tropics.

I now live in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii, along with my lifelong partner and husband Thomas and our two dogs.
