Originally from a small town, Eric Winston moved to Animal City to make his living as a writer. His natural curiosity and appetite for life (among other things) have allowed him to successfully work as a freelancer for magazines & periodicals.

Winston’s best friend and roommate is the detective, Elijah Snugs, with whom he often accompanies on investigations. Despite his lack of deductive ability, Snugs values Winston for his diplomacy and wide eyed perspective on problems.
