About The Author

Landon Wallace

I’m currently working on a new novel – Saving St. Nicholas – due to be published in 2021.



Landon Wallace’s background as an attorney and his work in politics have provided him with unique insight into the worlds of the lawyers and politicians he writes about. As Wallace has learned over the years, “fiction must go a long way to keep up with the bizarre characters who inhabit our American political culture.” Wallace also explores complex issues of identity, love, loss, and connection in his novels. In his popular Election series, the author delves deeply into these themes, raising the ultimate question of whether a tarnished but ethical leader can stay true to his values while campaigning for and holding public office. Yet, writing in Wallace’s view is first and foremost about good storytelling. He often says, “I want to write fiction that keeps readers turning that next page even as their eyelids droop with exhaustion.”

Wallace is also fascinated by history, and his novels always build historically interesting details around each of his characters’ fictional lives. His debut work, Come and Take It: Search for the Treasure of the Alamo, weaves a complex and compelling storyline that takes the reader through the harrowing days before and after the famous battle that led to Texas independence. Wallace is currently looking forward to the release of his fourth book, Saving St. Nicholas, a suspense novel that chronicles a journey of faith leading to the rediscovery of the real third century saint who would eventually become known as Santa Claus.

Wallace lives in Fort Worth, Texas, with his wife, three daughters, and dog Scout. His earlier works can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers. For more from this author, read his musings here.

The Next Election

POLITICIANS RARELY GET A SECOND CHANCE. The Next Election is the story of Blake Buchanan’s. Once a shoo-in for the highest political office in the state, Blake Buchanan sacrificed his lifelong dream to protect his family. Now, a year removed from his withdrawal as a Texas gubernatorial candidate, Blake seeks to revive his once successful legal career while navigating a nasty divorce and shielding his beloved daughters from the fallout.

The Election

TEXAS STATE SENATOR BLAKE BUCHANAN appears to have everything a man could want. A beautiful wife and family, wealth beyond his imagination, and a leading role in the Texas legislature. When Blake throws his hat into a long-shot race for governor, he puts it all at risk. His heavily-favored opponent, a sexy conservative whose values are as phony as her plasticized figure, and a fiery love from his past will threaten to destroy all that he holds dear.

Come and Take It

IN THE EARLY MORNING OF MARCH 6, 1836, the Mexican army storms the Alamo and kills every one of the defenders except William Barret Travis’s young black slave named Joe. Although General Santa Anna vows to keep him alive, a fearful Joe escapes away in the night carrying a prize far more valuable than anything inside the creaky Spanish mission.
