Pendelton Wallace Shares His Inspiration for His Novels #AmWriting #AmReading #Thriller

What Inspired Me to Write My Book
Blue Water & Me had to be written. I had thought about writing my father’s story for twenty-five years. Finally, I had surgery and was in bed recovering. I was going out of my mind with boredom, so I got out my lap top and began writing.
My other books have come from news articles. The Inside Passages was inspired by a planned terrorist attack in Canada that the RCMP foiled.
Hacker for Hire was inspired by a real-life story of corporate greed and industrial espionage in the Silicon Valley.
The Mexican Connection was inspired by all the news articles I have read about the Mexican Drug wars.
Christmas Inc. is the odd man out. I was driving to my girlfriend’s house one day during the Christmas season, and the idea for the book just popped into my head, fully fleshed out.  I don’t know where it came from, but I just had to write it down.
If Clive Cussler had written Ugly Betty, it would be Hacker for Hire. 

Hacker for Hire, a suspense novel about corporate greed and industrial espionage, is the second book in a series about Latino computer security analyst Ted Higuera and his best friend, para-legal Chris Hardwick. 

The goofy, off-beat Ted Higuera, son of Mexican immigrants, grew up in East LA. An unlikely football scholarship brought him to Seattle. 

Chris, Ted’s college roommate, grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. His father is the head of one of Seattle’s most prestigious law firms. 

Ted’s first job out of college leads him into the world of organized crime where he faces a brutal beating. After being rescued by beautiful private investigator Catrina Flaherty, Ted decides to go to work for her. 

Catrina is hired by a large computer corporation to find a leak in their corporate boardroom when the previous consultant is found floating in Elliot Bay. 

Ted discovers that Chris’s firm has been retained by their prime suspect. Now he and Chris are working opposite sides of the same case. 

Ted and Catrina are led deep into Seattle’s Hi-Tech world as they stalk the killer. But the killer is also hunting them. Can Ted find the killer before the killer finds him?
