George Wier was born in East Texas and spent most of his life there, principally around the Bryan and College Station area. He moved to Austin, Texas, in 2002 and shortly thereafter began writing The Bill Travis Mystery series. George currently lives in Austin with wife, Sallie, along with two cats and two dogs.
Writing is bothGeorge’s avocation and his vocation, but to add to these he plays both classical violin and country fiddle. He also dabbles in art (mostly drawing and painting), photography, and book cover design.
George began writing in earnest in 1986, although he has been creatively writing far longer than that, practically since he could read (at a very formative age.) He finds that he has far more ideas than he could ever write down, and so he picks and chooses only the best story ideas. George writes what he, himself likes to read and nothing more.
