Eric Alagan

<p>At age 16, Eric <pwa class="pwa-mark pwa-mark-done pwa-mark-ignored" data-pwa-category="spelling" data-pwa-dictionary-word="Alagan" data-pwa-hint="Unknown word: Alagan" data-pwa-id="pwa-08C2E9E574A5DBC380C99A16B4466700" data-pwa-rule-id="SIMPLE_SPELLING" data-pwa-suggestions="Alagna~Alafan~Alaban~Alavan~Qalağan">Alagan</pwa> grabbed an entry-level job in the aviation industry where he learned the intricacies of cleaning toilets and making lousy coffee for mechanics. He was the youngest labourer in Singapore&rsquo;s fledgling aviation industry, and also the best looking. The former was a fact, and the latter was a hope. In time, he graduated to fixing airplanes and engines.</p> <p>Twenty years later, he slipped into the corporate suites but kept his tool box behind his desk. It was a conversation piece&mdash;grease monkey made good. But his secret&mdash;the tool box kept him rooted. After swimming with sharks for a further twenty-plus years, he retired to pursue his passion&mdash;writing.</p> <p>Eric has published fiction and non-fiction books.</p> <p>Married with three adult children, Eric considers himself fortunate - the children&nbsp;take after his wife. His hobbies include road cycling, philately, and reading books. His wife continues to love him. Like Creation, her love remains a mystery for him.</p> <p>He <pwa class="pwa-mark pwa-mark-done" data-pwa-category="style" data-pwa-dictionary-word="retains" data-pwa-hint="Readability may be enhanced by using: keeps" data-pwa-id="pwa-984A21DB1C6E66BA9FF6DC974D6B7A6F" data-pwa-rule-id="READABILITY_2956" data-pwa-suggestions="keeps">retains</pwa> his tool box&mdash;true. Continues to brew lousy coffee&mdash;also true. He is getting balder by the day because his wife loves him. Yes, go figure. Or pose your question in the reviews and he&rsquo;ll reveal the secret surrounding his thinning hair.</p>
