ACCOLADES

"Ron Wallace is an exciting new poetic
voice in American Poetry. What grace!"
    
     

BILLIE LETTS,
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLLING AUTHOR

Every generation has its poets, and out of those a few will rise up

to compose songs of war.  Homer’s creation of The Iliad,

looking back, beyond his own time to celebrate not only the
heroes but the horrors of combat and battle—is one such
collection of songs.  Smoke and Stone, by Ron Wallace, is
another. 

LYNN DOIRON, 
WINNER OF THE DOMINIC J. BAZZENELLA AWARD IN FICTION

Before my ashes to soot, dust to dirt moment, I can catch a ride in the comfort of Ron’s verse, back to a place on the far side of the wire to a free range of the mind. The past will be your constant companion, a shadow rider on the ridge that you couldn’t outrun, even if you pushed’er Hell-bent ‘til dawn. So it is with a hard-won honorary degree from my own school of barroom philosophy that I decree: It is Ron Wallace’s gift of the music of language that gets me through those nights that are so black I start prayin’ for the blues.

Ron Wallace is an Oklahoma native and currently an adjunct instructor of English at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, in Durant, Oklahoma, where he was born and raised. His father served as a police officer there, rising to the rank of captain. He is the author of ten books of poetry, five of which have been finalists in the Oklahoma Book Awards with Renegade and Other Poems winning the 2018 Oklahoma Book Award.

Influenced by the styles of Robert B. Parker, Peter Bowen, and James Lee Burke, his novel, A Secret Lies in New Orleans, marks the prize-winning poet's first venture into prose, although a second book is nearing completion. Updates will be available here.
