Jerold Wallace was born in the middle of the Sunshine State, where his parents promptly made a typo on the spelling of his name. He graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Marketing. In a completely logical next step, he taught middle school math and science for the next six years. Despite the challenge and joy that came from the soul-crushing profession of teaching twelve-year-olds, he's finally pursuing his passion for creating stories. He now spends the majority of his time writing horror-comedies, solving crossword puzzles, and correcting the spelling of his name.
