About R.W. Wallace
R.W. Wallace writes in most genres, though she tends to end up in mystery more often than not. Dead bodies keep popping up all over the place whenever she sits down in front of her keyboard.
The stories mostly take place in Norway or France; the country she was born in and the one that has been her home for two decades. Don't ask her why she writes in English - she won't have a sensible answer for you.
Her Ghost Detective short story series appears in Pulphouse Magazine, starting in issue #9.
You can find all her books, long and short, on rwwallace.com.

Titles By R.W. Wallace
Even Robert, a long-time ghost and something of a pro when it comes to final rites, finds it disconcerting. In the company of his long-time friend and fellow ghost Clothilde, Robert watches as his mother accompanies his remains to the grave — thirty years after his demise.
But why does Clothilde’s frail old uncle do the same? Does he know about the link between Clothilde and Robert’s deaths?
A funeral won’t put the past to rest — only solving the mystery of their own murders can bring closure.
And Uncle Lucien seems to hold vital clues…
Unveiling the Past is the second novel in the Ghost Detective series, following Robert and Clothilde in their continued search for justice.
Robert and Clothilde’s current interviewee occupies a tiny cemetery in the depths of the Pyrenees. Alone since her burial over a decade ago, she willingly tells the detectives about the circumstances around her death.
Louise’s story sets Robert, Clothilde, and Captain Evian on the path to uncovering new facets of the conspiracy responsible for so many deaths — bringing them one step closer to justice.
Robert and Clothilde, Evian’s ghostly friends on the other end of the Ouija board, do their best to contain the unpredictable Constantine, and help their new friend find peace.
The group also continues investigating Clothilde and Robert’s thirty-year-old cold cases — and newer ones that are eerily similar — in their elusive search for justice.
Beneath the Surface is the third novel in the Ghost Detective series, following Robert and Clothilde in their continued search for justice.
And in thirty years, no visitors for either of them.
Confined within the cemetery borders and yearning for closure to move on, the two ghosts can’t go after the people who killed them.
Until Clothilde receives her first visitor in thirty years — and along with it, the means to escape the cemetery.
Beyond the Grave is the first novel in the Ghost Detective series, following Robert and Clothilde in their search for justice.
Two police officers arrive with a new urn, to be placed in a slot without a name. Clothilde and Robert, the cemetery’s only resident ghosts, attend the funeral from their side of the veil.
Most people need time to come to grips with being a ghost. Most people scream for days.
When a young girl pops out of the urn without so much as a squeak, Clothilde and Robert know they have a challenging new case on their hands.
While resident ghosts Clothilde and Robert wait for their new compatriots to emerge from their caskets, the screams coming from below seem tinged with quite a bit more... anger than usual.
The promise of "till death do us part" takes on a whole new meaning with the fresh arrivals.
While waiting for Clothilde's return, Robert decides to greet the newest arrival, an overly polite octagonarian who makes no claims of unfinished business.
But as her story unfurls, it becomes increasingly likely the old lady's affairs and Clothilde's disappearance are closely related — in more ways than one.
If not, the municipality will excavate the tomb to liberate the space for a new family.
After the latest excavation, Robert and Clothilde find themselves faced with a ghost much older than themselves — along with the daunting task of solving a century-old mystery.
Is it still possible to find eternal rest for their new friend?
Even amid the rainbow of petals, one grave stands out. The last resting place of the young man who died six months ago. His mother brings him roses, while lamenting that her son's "not there."
As the resident ghosts, Robert and Clothilde can indeed confirm his absence in the afterlife — but it may not be for the usual reasons.
They watch the seasons pass and the mourners weep. Other ghosts come and go as they deal with their unfinished business.
When Clothilde makes quick friends with a new arrival, Robert marvels at seeing her laugh and behave like a teenager again — even if it means loneliness for him.
She deserves some happiness.
But when a second girl arrives in their cemetery, a pattern emerges. Robert and Clothilde must once again apply their crime-solving skills to go after their new friends’ murderer.
