Eric Rasmussen has taught high school English in western Wisconsin for over a decade. At the beginning of his career, he decided to write a novel someday, because he hadn't yet learned that cliches are bad. He is currently seeking representation for his most recent manuscript, a story about identity and infidelity, intimate secrets shared online, and youth hockey.

His other literary accomplishments include earning an MFA from Augsburg University in 2018, and founding the journal Barstow & Grand, a regional publication helping to redefine what "literary community" means in the 21st century. In 2019 he joined the team at Sundog Lit as fiction editor. He likes milk (but not enough to drink it every day), and whenever he sees a shooting star, he panics and wishes for something he already has.
