Getting personal with James Wallace
James Wallace is an amazing writer, friend and father. He has a burning passion for his books and what he writes. The first book I read by him was Zombie Theroem. If you are looking for a zombie book that isn’t a cookie cutter zombie book then I highly recommend this series. The characters are so well-developed and you will love them and root for them. I have to admit that I cried and laughed while reading this book. It will make you hold your breath and you won’t want to put it down. James loves to interact with his readers and fans. He has an awesome sense of humor and is one of the kindest men I have ever met. He definitely is a favorite of mine. He will be at Scares that Cares this summer and I hope to meet him and give him a huge hug. He loves his children more than life and when you hear him talk about them you can see the pride and love he has for them. He has a second love his car Eleanor. A mustang. If you haven’t had the chance to get to know James Wallace I highly recommend you do. Read his books you will love them and don’t forget to leave a review!
