Wow Wednesday Author: SL Wallace

S.L. Wallace Let me tell you a little bit about S. L. Wallace. The surname is a pseudonym, but it’s a pen name based on fact. She is indeed related to the famous William Wallace.

You see, her mother has a passion for genealogy, and people in her family like to tell stories. That makes for some interesting dinner conversations. Her paternal grandmother always told outrageous stories, like how she was considering going out for Halloween with nothing on, just a raisin in her navel — yep, she was planning to go as an oatmeal cookie! Her mother, on the other hand, likes to tell family history as true, yet fascinating, stories. Because of her mother, she had heard the surname Wallace.

When the movie Braveheart came out, she went to see it. Once she heard the name William Wallace, she had trouble concentrating on the film because she kept thinking that name sounded so familiar. As soon as she got home, she called her parents, hoping to connect with her mother. Alas, she was not home, but her dad was, so she posed her question with the hopes that he may have the answer, or if he didn’t, that he would be willing to pass along the question to her mother upon her return.

“Dad,” she said. “I just got back from seeing Braveheart, and the main character’s name was William Wallace. Is he any relation, do you think?”

“Yes, he is,” her father said with certainty.

“Really?” she asked.

“Yes, but that doesn’t mean you’re related to Mel Gibson.”

Clearly, her father inherited his mother’s sense of humor, but he’s also a history buff. He went on to explain the Scottish clan system, including surnames. S. L. Wallace is honored to be able to carry on the name.

Price of a Bounty Synopsis

Keira Maddock has never considered herself a lady. In fact, she often acts in ways that would be considered downright un-ladylike. A hired killer and thief whose only goal is to provide the necessities of life for herself and her sister, she has learned to be brutally effective in her trade, with skills as sharp as the weapons she prefers. And when the head of a huge, shadowy corporation hires her to remove a powerful and wealthy opponent, Keira is happy to oblige. Until she meets him…
Scott Maddock is a hardened Terenian soldier-for-life. His job, to uphold the motto of the realm: “Reliance on Citizens Makes Us Great!” Soldiers work for the Gov, and the Gov is run by heads of corporations. But where do Scott’s loyalties really lie? Only he and his best friend know for sure.

April Maddock is trying to make it on her own and has taken a job with a wealthy family. She has chosen not to fight the system like Keira, nor to fight for the Gov like Scott. Unlike her siblings, she recognizes the good in everyone. Even so, outside appearances can be deceiving. April knows that better than most.

Infested with greed and divided by power, the realm of Terene bears remarkable resemblance to our own society. But opposite despair, there is always hope. Whereas Keira Maddock brings destruction, Guy Bensen brings promise. Wealthy and powerful, yet thoughtful and caring, he is an anomaly who throws her completely off guard. When she learns of his connections to Scott and April, Keira knows she has made the right decision in not only sparing his life but in joining his cause.

Reviews

“Price of a Bounty is a pleasant surprise. The action is fun and the growing complexity not only of the ploy but of the character’s relationships with each other keeps the reader hooked.” Kenneth J. Mayer (Amazon Review)

“This is a compelling, entertaining thriller and love story that is an allegory about the hazards of privilege and power, where absolute power corrupts absolutely. I felt for Keira immediately, a smart and conscionable woman who pines for the past as she listens to her mother’s favorite records, like “I’ve Got Rhythm,” the simpler songs of a bygone era, and yet who bravely confronts the future and will sacrifice everything for a good cause. Full of twists, genetic manipulation and subterfuge, it kept me turning pages. The ending was totally unexpected and I look forward to the sequel.” Annie (Amazon Review)

“Price of a Bounty effectively incorporates drama, action and romance to create an intriguing tale that once you start you won’t be able to stop. The book is fast paced, full of interesting plot twists and has characters that you genuinely care about. An excellent read.” Andrew M. Newton (Amazon Review)
