Biography of Eric LaBranche, author of the children's picture books "A Cup of Tea?" and "A Chocolate in My Pocket" published by Clavis Publishing, New York
Eric has been writing poetry and short stories nearly all his life. He has transformed many of his writings into his favourite genre, children’s picture books. Eric tells stories that awaken positive thoughts and ideas for readers of all ages. He especially enjoys writing stories that entertain as well as inspire fresh points of view, with a particular eye towards the lovely innocent way that children view the world.
Eric was born and raised in the United States (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island). His childhood experiences and the collective imagination of seven brothers and sisters helped him to dream up many of his early writings. He continues to discover new stories to tell while now living in the west of Ireland with his wife Helen and their two children, Claire and Eoin.
