“Book Group of One” goes back to December 2008. For a long time I reviewed every single book I read. I’ve decided now to blog only about the ones that delight me, and to focus on making the rest of the material more accessible. There are well over 550 reviews here, so dig around and see what you can find! You can search by author or title and I’m working on boosting the tags now. That should help you find what you’re looking for.
I write books as well as reading them. As Carol McD. Wallace, I have published 20 books. In the spring of 2012 Workman Publishing reissued To Marry an English Lord, which I wrote with Gail MacColl back in the late 1980s. “Downton Abbey” enthusiasm has brought it back to life. Other titles include social history, parenting, humor, and fiction.
The latest — due in stores in July 2016 — is my take on Ben-Hur. It’s the official tie-in for the MGM movie, and the fun part is that my great-great-grandfather Lew Wallace wrote the original novel on which all the films are based. I’ve updated his book for contemporary audiences and it was a lot of fun.
