Who was L. R. Wright?

Laurali Rose Wright was a Canadian writer of mystery novels.

Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Wright worked as an actor and journalist before publishing her first novel, Neighbours, in 1979. Her earliest novels were literary fiction; after the publication of The Suspect, her first mystery novel and winner of the 1986 Edgar Award for Best Novel, she concentrated exclusively on the genre. One further work of literary fiction, Love in the Temperate Zone, appeared in 1988.

Wright rarely used her given names for any purpose. She published all her novels as L. R. Wright, and was known as Bunny in her personal life.

Wright died of breast cancer in Vancouver, British Columbia.
