From an early age, Eric Wilson wanted to be a writer. Although he was born in California and raised in Oregon, his more enduring memories started in Europe where his parents took Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. Life was an adventure, full of exotic cultures and peoples.
Back in the States, Eric went through junior high and high school. He loved soccer, basketball, chess, and girls. It took a few years to learn how to talk to them, but they interested him from a distance.
After high school, Eric traveled in eastern Europe and China. He returned to his parents’ crumbling marriage. He moved to LA and began college. During his junior year, a childhood friend showed up as a freshman. Within months they were married, and are now in their eighteenth year, with two daughters to keep them on their toes. They are not perfect (their kids could give you details), but they refuse to stop fighting for their family...and for their faith in Jesus, who is bigger than their self-centeredness.
