Eric Wilson is a New York Times best-selling author and recipient of a Retailers' Choice Award. His books include the novelizations of the films Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and October Baby. From an early age Wilson wanted to be a writer. Although he was raised in Oregon, his more enduring memories started in Europe, where, as a missionary kid, he traveled with his parents as they took Bibles behind the Iron Curtain. Life was an adventure, full of exotic cultures and peoples. After high school Wilson traveled in eastern Europe and China. Eric and his wife, Carolyn Rose, have two grown daughters and two grandchildren. He loves God, and asks, "If Jesus is the answer, why are we so afraid of the questions?"
