6/5/1939 Laurali Wright is born

June 5, 1939.  Laurali Rose Wright was born on this date in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  She was a journalist who started writing novels at mid-age.  Her first mystery, The Suspect, won the Edgar for Best Novel in 1986.  That book, like most of her mysteries, featured a cop named Karl Alberg.  By the way, in most of the world, except the U.S., she was published as L.R. Wright.

  1. Thanks for reminding me of L.R. Wright. I have read the first two in the Karl Alberg series and have the 3rd. I want to read all of them.
