Eric E Wright grew up in the west-end of 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. While there he wrote five self-teaching textbooks for the seminary he taught at. On their return to Canada he pastored a church in Toronto for nine years until the passion to write became too strong to deny. Eleven of Eric’s books have been published, some memoirs and five thrillers.
