Praise for the Author

Regarding 'One Single Ticket'
'A detective story told at a breathless pace, with a Richard Hannay type hero straight out of a John Buchan thriller, and it goes with a swing'
Professor Angus Buchanan, author of 'Brunel: The Life and Times of Isambard Kingdom Brunel'

Regarding 'One Single Ticket'
'The plot is so interesting, and the setting so well done; a delight to get a scenic picture of this special event in history.'
Dr. Gabrielle Obrist, Museum of Modern Art, Zȕrich

Regarding 'Valentines Cup'
'When war or the threat of war is "over there", we care, sure, but then we grab an ale and decide on dinner. When we face an invasion HERE, though, every citizen becomes a bit of a hero. The boy delivering an apple to the old woman next door. The young girl helping to sew blackout curtains. The lorry driver making his or her vital rounds under threat of another bombing run. This is a novel with a hero, or two, but the large picture is that every man and woman had a part to play in preserving the freedom of a country and a continent.'

'From the start, this story conveys that sense of time and place, blending actual characters from our history with fictional, but wholly plausible, characters. It does not detail the horrors of war; there are no close ups of trauma, so to speak. We have seen enough, I say. A great beauty of Robert Wallace's writing is that those details aren't required. This not to say that the trauma isn't there. It is, but we are placed in a world where wartime is implicit, along with an optimism that simply must exist.'

'As you read this book, try to imagine what actors could play the lead roles in a major motion picture release. Surely this will make a great film.'
Rodney J. Little, President, W. E. Little Company, Charlotte, NC
