Larry J. Eriksson is a Wisconsin writer and poet from Madison and Ellison Bay. He is a long time member of the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets. Although he is an engineer, he enjoys working with words as much as numbers. His poems preserve memories, clarify thoughts, explore feelings, or simply have fun with language.

Complimentary copies of his poetry chapbooks as well as other publications are available at www.quartersectionpress.com.

For over 30 years, he worked in research specializing in acoustics, noise control, and digital signal processing. He is the author of many published technical papers, chapters in two engineering books, several books on socioeconomic issues, and the recent ebook Waves of Silence: Digisonix, active noise control and the digital revolution. He has a B.S.E.E. from Northwestern University, an M.S.E.E. from the University of Minnesota, a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
