George Byron Wright
George Byron Wright was born in The Dalles, Oregon where he lived until he migrated to three other small Oregon towns as his father pursued the life of a mortician. Living in Baker City, Tillamook and Roseburg endowed him with a lifelong fondness for small places. Following a lengthy career in the not–for–profit sector, during which time he wrote professionally, publishing books on management and board development, George returned to his love of fiction.
His first novel, “Baker City 1948”, was followed by “Tillamook 1952” , and “Roseburg 1959” . George then moved on to contemporary fiction with his fourth novel, “Driving to Vernonia” before writing “Newport Blues, A Salesman’s Lament” and “In the Wake of Our Misdeed” .
“I Am Ned Pine” is his seventh novel. He and his wife Betsy live in Portland.
