Joseph Wallace is the author of many non-fiction books - including four on baseball history - and several short stories.
With the publication of Diamond Ruby
in 2010 his childhood dream of writing a novel and seeing it published has come true. Rather than spending a lot of time in libraries, he attributes some of his best research as the time he spends in his local schools, running storytelling and creative-writing workshops for elementary and middle-school students.
Joseph lives with his family north of New York City.
