Eric Chance Stone
Eric Chance Stone was born and raised on the gulf coast of Southeast Texas. An avid surfer, sailor, scuba diver, fisherman and treasure hunter, Eric met many bigger than life characters on his adventures across the globe. Wanting to travel after college, he got a job with Northwest Airlines and moved to Florida. Shortly thereafter transferred to Hawaii, then Nashville. After years of being a staff songwriter in Nashville, he released his first album, Songs For Sail in 1999, a tropically inspired collection of songs. He continued to write songs and tour and eventually landed a gig with Sail America and Show Management to perform at all international boat shows where his list of characters continued to grow.
He moved to the Virgin Islands in 2007 and became the official entertainer for Pusser’s Marina Cay in the BVI. After several years in the Caribbean, his fate for telling stories was sealed.
Upon release of his 15th CD, All The Rest, he was inspired to become a novelist after a chance meeting with Wayne Stinnett. Wayne along with Cap Daniels, Chip Bell and a few others, became his mentors and they are all good friends now.
Eric currently resides in Destin, Florida with his three exotic birds, Harley, Marley and Ozzy.
Inspired by the likes of Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt, Wayne Stinnett's Jesse McDermitt, Cap Daniels Chase Fulton, Chip Bell’s Jake Sullivan and many more, Eric’s tales are sprinkled with Voodoo, Hoodoo and kinds of weird stuff. From the bayous of Texas to the Voodoo dens of Haiti, his twist of reality will take you for a ride. His main character Rick Waters is a down to earth good ol’ boy, adventurist turned private eye, who uses his treasure hunting skills and street smarts to solve mysteries.
