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 where Eric was the co-founder of the Open Theological Seminary, which now serves over 1500 students. While there he wrote five self-teaching textbooks for this extension school.

Upon their return to Canada he pastored a church in Toronto for nine years until the passion to write became too strong to deny. From 1991 to the present eight of his books have been published. For the past decade he has edited a quarterly seniors’ magazine, the Fellowship.

Through a Country Window – Inspiring stories from out where the sky springs free, published in 2001, tells the story of Eric & Mary Helen’s move from the city to a country property. In a whimsical and often humorous style it draws readers into their story with a view to helping them celebrate country life.

Eric & Mary Helen live in Salem and have three married children and nine grandchildren. Eric is a member of the Writers’ Union of Canada and The Word Guild.
