Wallace Clausen grew up in Seattle and resides in the Pacific Northwest. Its jeweled landscape, resplendent with Mt. Rainier its crowning glory, drew him to an abiding respect for nature. He and his wife enjoy traveling the nation’s parks and scenic areas.
A graduate of Seattle Pacific University, Wallace earned a master’s degree at Western Oregon University. His 39-year career as an educator spanned Oregon and Washington, the last 26 years serving as principal in three school districts. He is a recipient of the ESPAW Distinguished Principal Award.
Wallace has served in various church leadership positions, most recently chairing outreach and service. He enjoys supporting his wife’s coordinator role of providing lunches for homeless women. When not writing, the couple treasures time with their four grandchildren, two each from their son and daughter.
