Eric Jay Dolin

Eric Jay Dolin grew up near the coasts of New York and Connecticut, and from an early age was fascinated by the natural world, especially the ocean. He spent many days wandering the beaches on the edge of Long Island Sound and the Atlantic, collecting seashells and exploring tidepools. Throughout his career, which included jobs as an environmental consultant and an environmental policy analyst, one thing remained constant - he enjoyed writing and telling stories. Around 2002 he  wanted to be a fulltime writer but it took another five years to meet that threshold.
