About the Author
Despite the struggles he encountered in the last year of his life, Eddie maintained a positive spirit and thrived on creation and expression. For years Eddie wanted to publish a children's book he wrote entitled "The Story of Walter the Whale with Wings". With the help of his friends, family, a few hundred newfound fans, and a successful kickstarter campaign for the film, Ed was able to hold a printed copy of his book and read it complete with artwork less than 48 hours before he lost his battle with cancer. An amazing accomplishment and a testament to how much he was cared for by those around him.
