Introduction to George Byron Wright, author of IN THE WAKE OF OUR MISDEEDS

In my new novel, “In the Wake of Our Misdeed”, I delve into the bottomless pit of guilt every human holds onto over mistakes made in times past. The novel gets its jump start when a man walks away from a watery death, thought to be dead, and uses the sudden anonymity to set something right that has been wrong for so long. I look forward to meeting you at Jan’s Paperbacks on Saturday, Feb. 7, 1-4 p.m. Let’s talk and I’ll sign a book for you. —George Byron Wright.

About the Author:

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”. “In the Wake of Our Misdeed” is his sixth novel. He and his wife Betsy live in Portland.
