Eric has won almost every imaginable award for his work and his book “Hope Springs” was just awarded the illustrious 2015 Christopher Award – an award that affirms the highest value of the human spirit. His fantastic book “The Rule of Three”, that I spent all day yesterday reading, is up for the 2015 Red Maple award – and it wouldn’t be the first time that he’s won it.
With over 80 books already published and even more books down the pipeline, Eric has had the time to create the Creation of Hope – an organization that supports over 500 orphans in the rural Mbooni district of Kenya. And we will talk about this also.
