Eric Pinder writes slowly and deliberately. But he's pretty fast on a bicycle.


Background Information

Eric Pinder was born in upstate New York, attended college in western Massachusetts, graduated, and some time later drove to northern New Hampshire in a rusty Chevy Nova packed with a few clothes, almost no furniture, and about a dozen boxes of books.

Eric’s lifelong interests in science and the outdoors led to jobs at the Appalachian Mountain Club and Mount Washington Observatory. For seven years he lived and worked as a weather observer atop the snowy, windswept, 6288-foot summit of Mount Washington, the “Home of the World’s Worst Weather.” His experiences there inspired several books, including Among the Clouds and Tying Down the Wind. 

His first book for children, Cat in the Clouds, was published by The History Press in 2009. He teaches at Chester College, which is home to some truly amazing student writers.

Eric enjoys hiking and biking up the hills of New Hampshire, but has not yet qualified to join the Four Thousand Footer Club (for people who have climbed each of the state’s 48 peaks rising 4000+ feet). He has, however, climbed one of those peaks (Mount Washington) at least 48 times and thinks that ought to count.

He lives in Berlin, New Hampshire.

Additional Information

Eric's essay "Bicycles and Bagpipes" appears in the recently published book Cycling's Greatest Misadventures (Casagrande Press).

The Yellow Jersey (book review)
Sometimes I finish a book and think, "Geez, I wish I'd written that first." This is one of them.
