Eric E. Wright grew up in Toronto, studied forestry at the University of Toronto then transferred to Columbia International University in South Carolina to receive training in overseas ministry. There he met and married Mary Helen, a nurse from SC. Together they served in Pakistan for 16 years where, as a teaching missionary, Eric co-founded the Open Theological Seminary, which now serves over 2500 students. Upon their return to Canada he pastored a church in Toronto for nine years and though he wrote text-books for his students, the passion to write fiction became too strong to deny. Eleven of his books have been published. Eric & Mary Helen now live in Port Hope and have three married children and nine grandchildren.
