The more serious side of E. A. Barker believes he is an average guy in mid-life who has led a mostly average life. His readers may not agree with his assessment. The single biggest difference between him and most other people, is his pursuit of knowledge. Throughout his life he never stopped asking the simplest question: Why? E. A. fancies himself as a collector of ideas and a purveyor of dot connections. He attempts to present his findings in an entertaining fashion in an effort to encourage people to read—especially men who are reading far too little these days. He is an advocate of education for its ability to affect social reform, and actively promotes the idea that a global conscience is possible. The fiction-writing side of E. A. Barker would love nothing better than leading a screen-free life using a typewriter in a grass hut on a beach somewhere near the equator, but this has yet to become his reality. He currently lives within walking distance of a beach in Ontario, Canada, although he is not happy about the short beach season, and the city’s denial of his proposed erection of a private beach hut on the waterfront. E. A. is committed, for now, to remaining accessible to his readers in a limited way. Each of his books has its own website/blog loaded with links to places he is known to hide out:
