Edgar Rider is a writer living in Phoenix, Arizona. Sometimes he goes by the pen name Bob Eager. This is only when he feels like giving people absurd messages.
Bob Eager always hides his eyes behind blue shades and wears a bright yellow shirt. Even under Edgar Rider his personal memoirs have a bizarre warped twist to them. He is still waiting on a community theatre developmental deal.
He has tried to write poetry with a steady hand but has found it more rewarding to stick with prose and the short story.
Edgar Rider has a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Arizona State University. He was a student teacher teaching At Risk Kids Playback Theatre.

I live in part of a converted 17th Century watermill in deepest darkest South shropshire on the English / Welsh borders. I love writing, reading, walking and landscape photography. I am passionate about Nature and all it entails and this often gives me inspiration for my work.
I specialise in Flash Fiction, Photography, Prose and Poetry. My blog features some of my photography along with prose and/or poetry inspired by the image.
In my twenties and living in the outskirts of South East London, I write predominantly dark tales of desperation, which tend to expose more about myself than I ever could in a short biography.
I started writing to keep myself sane or so I could sleep at night. Sentences would often take form in my head and if I didn't write them down they wouldn't go away. These were always embryonic ideas and it was a while before I started turning them into poems or stories. It's still how everything starts. Alcohol tends to be my best muse and ideas often come to me at the most inappropriate of times, when I can do nothing about them except store them up for when I'm drunk and have a keyboard or pen and paper in front of me. I am a terrible editor. One day I'll learn how to go back and edit and rewrite my work, but for now I'll do whatever feels right.
