Eryk Pruitt
storyteller

book cover for Dirtbags

My name is Eryk Pruitt and I am a screenwriter, author and filmmaker living in Durham, NC with my wife Lana and my cat Busey.

In 2012 I wrote and produced the short film “FOODIE” (directed by Christopher G. Moore) which went on to win numerous awards at film festivals across the United States. My short fiction has appeared in The Avalon Literary Review, Pantheon Magazine, Pulp Modern, Zymbol, and The Speculative Edge, to name a few. My novel DIRTBAGS is now available in print or ebook format.

If there's one thing I want to do, it's tell a good story. Horror, noir, suspense…Film, stage, page…To me, all that matters is the story. I'll tell you one at the bar over a bourbon or in a packed movie house during a film festival. Life is short; in the end, all that remains are the stories.
