In his career, Eric Von Schrader has made documentary films, produced television shows, and works as an instructional design consultant. He was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and spent most of his life there. He has always been fascinated by the older parts of the city and their echoes of a lost world. A few years ago, he and his wife moved to Carpinteria, California. He has always wanted to live by the ocean. Still, the neighborhoods and streets of St. Louis are etched deep into his brain.


They thought they were done with the parallel universe. But it wasn’t done with them. 

Billy Boustany had the adventure of a lifetime. Now, all he wants to do is to go back to the amazing universe he discovered. But the power brokers over there warned him to stay away and keep his mouth shut. 

At the same time, Diyami Red Hawk, an idealistic young man from that universe has connected with Billy’s daughter and is on a mission to build a modern Native American city in our world. But he’s getting nowhere—until he finds support in unexpected places.

A plea for help from the other universe gives Billy his chance to return. He and his wife immerse themselves in the beauty and splendor of this odd, intriguing world. Then they encounter dark secrets lurking beneath its surface.  

Billy, Diyami and their friends have to make the biggest decision of their lives, with the fate of two worlds hanging in the balance. 


“In A Universe Less Traveled and A Universe Disrupted you’ll visit a St Louis you know (Parkway Central, Tower Grove Park, Webster University, Pho Grand (alas!), Cahokia) and one you have never imagined (no Arch, no Cardinals, a new Cahokia!). With Eric von Schrader, expect an unforgettable world of surprises and fun. I had an amazing time – and so will you.” -Charlie Brennan, author of Only in St. Louis!, radio and television host
