In these work in progress updates I’m going to try and share what it’s like when I write and launch a new book. I’ll try to leave out all the boring bits where it’s just me typing. Dumb White Husbands vs Zombies: The Idea All stories start with an idea. Or a deadline. This one [...]
I read a bit of a review of Dan Brown’s new book the other day. It essentially said that it was highly entertaining but that it wouldn’t receive any literary awards. Duh. But it made me realize something that is uniquely stupid to book reviews. A book is rarely reviewed for what it is supposed [...]
I’ve always loved Kipling’s poem If. It has such a great message for growing boys that I wanted to share it with my sons. But it’s a little lofty for kids that young. So, I added bears and that got their attention. Here it is, Danger Bear in Rudyard Kipling’s If. There’s 45 original illustrations [...]
I’m not sure what’s going on. A year ago I was selling thousands of copies of my books each month. Now, I’m lucky if I sell 10 a day. I know that Amazon has changed some things. A lot of things. So that could be it. It could be the world playing with me. Now [...]
Forgive me. I’m excited. My latest book launches today. This is the second book in The Bulletproof Adventures of Damian Stockwell and I still can’t get over how much fun I had writing this one. Damian Stockwell is my ode to the pulp heroes of the 30′s. He’s been described by others as Doc Savage [...]

It’s beautiful. I’ve lost track of time. Monday’s have lost their hold over me and if it wasn’t for the kids’ after school stuff I wouldn’t even have to care what day it was. Projects I’ve wanted to get to for years are finally progressing: The Bulletproof Adventures of Damian Stockwell will continue in 2 [...]

I love new cover day! Here is the cover for my next book The Bulletproof Adventures of Damian Stockwell: Terrors of Tesla. The original illustration is by the same artist that did the cover art for Horrors in Honduras. She’s pretty awesome. Crystal Roznik added the lightning and did the layout. It’s not too late [...]
Prisoner’s Dilemma: A Duck & Cover Adventurette by Benjamin Wallace “Have you ever been in one of these fight-to-the-death things?” There was nothing remarkable about the man that asked the question. Several piercings protruded from his face. His hair was but a blue strip down the center of his head and a collection of nicks [...]

DWH vs. The Grocery Store Best short story ever! ...this is probably the best short story i have ever read! i could not stop laughing while reading the story, please if you read this at a place like the library, they will tell you to be quiet but it will be impossible..."
"This has to be the most LOL book I've ever read. I made the mistake of reading it in bed whilst my boyfriend was sleeping, I think I have strained a stomach muscle trying to hold in the laughter!..."
Tortugas Rising Yet again Wallace has proved that he is the master of the irreverent action packed novel! "His protagonists are just 2 regular Joes put into a scenario that defies explanation and rise to the occasion, all the while providing some genuine belly laughs. I defy any one not to crack up during the Rhino scene"
Tortugas Rising Witty and fun. Very funny and action packed! "Where else are you gonna find inherent millionaire's in boat chase's rhino attacks and gun fights? Good stuff from beginning to end."
