As a winter front in Williamsville, New York dumps lake-effect snow into the streets, Rick Soblinski, a caretaker at Oak Leaf Retirement Home, trudges into work to find he has a new resident in his hall— a Jane Doe abandoned in a sister facility located in the South Townes. The home’s administration transferred the woman to Oak Leaf, the broader outfitted facility, because of her extreme condition: tumor–like growths cover her face, and she appears completely unresponsive to her environment. While attempting to care for his new charge, Rick is stifled by anxiety, overwhelmed by a flood of buried memories: past indiscretion and consequence. He determines that the woman’s maladies extend far beyond the surface. The experience manifests into a bizarre nightmare that bleeds into reality, changing everything. Allie, Rick’s older girlfriend and alpha-businesswoman, copes with his erratic behavior; Oak Leaf’s Office Manager, Tony Delgado, is determined to find the disfigured woman’s family; and the administration of Oak Leaf Retirement Home endures a string of disappearances of both staff and patients alike. Multiple pathways converge to uncover the Jane Doe’s origins and ultimate purpose.

Eric has always been interested in the stranger things and growing up in Western New York, there were plenty of channels to entertain his ample imagination. This curiosity, evoked at a young age, is the driving force behind his creative process. Local lore stemming from the Iroquois influence is heavily embedded in his first novel "Mask of Flies". While influenced mostly by darker yarns that tend to wade into Horror and Science Fiction waters (King, Lovecraft, Barker), he is also often infatuated with works that cross genre specific boundaries and writes in this vein whenever the opportunity presents itself.
