George Wier writes like he talks: Texan. within the Nineteen Nineties he befriended the older novelist Milton T. Burton and the 2 grew to become shut acquaintances. In 1998, Burton, nervous approximately his overall healthiness, informed Wier this tale and requested him to be his collaborator and crucial author. the 2 associates talked from side to side, and Wier wrote the unconventional. in the meantime, impatient with the publishing undefined, George Wier has very effectively e-published his invoice Travis secret sequence. He performs classical violin and state mess around, dabbles in artwork and images, and is a born promoter of all that he does. this is often his first trade-published novel. He lives in Austin, Texas together with his spouse Sallie.
Milton T. Burton (1947-2011) authored 4 crime novels released via Minotaur/Thomas Dunne. Like Wier, Burton used to be a lifelong Texan who breathed the Texas lingo. Burton were variously a cattleman, a political advisor, and a faculty background instructor. A cantankerous yet beneficiant guy, he loved writing and he loved chatting with his acquaintances, particularly George Wier. He died in December 2011.
