Friends of Ms. Mystery


Born and raised in China, Ms. Wallace moved to the mysterious city of San Francisco with her family, where the influence of Victorian architecture captured her imagination.

After graduating UCLA and marrying James Wallace, she pursued a writing career and began collecting awards for her efforts.

She has authored seven Victorian-era novels, nine novels targeted at boys and girls relationships, and six fantasy novels. Additionally, she has penned a biography about her mother, her own autobiography and a host of picture books and short stories.  Besides her work in the publishing world, she wrote the screenplay for her book, “Miss Switch to the Rescue” for ABC Television; and she’s written two musicals, based on her books, “Perfect Acres” and “Peppermints in the Parlor.”

Besides being an avid reader -- and writer -- Ms. Wallace enjoys knitting and enriches herself on the Internet. The “Miss Switch Online” has been transferred to the Kindle -- a platform she’s embraced wholeheartedly.

Today, she continues to conceive, conjure and write. She is collaborating with the writing and development team at PANGEA Corporation, the creative sorcerers who have worked on sundry intellectual properties, including “The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Toonsylvania,” “The Mummy,” “Zorro,” and a host of others.

Ms. Wallace is excited to bring her magical touch and visionary fantasies into the 21st-century! She has mentored many authors and is always game to celebrate children with book signing parties, library readings and book store appearances.

Once you meet Barbara, she becomes your friend for life and insists on being called Bobbie. But that doesn’t mean she won’t still try to spin a yarn that will scare the bejeebies out of you!
