About (Profile/Biography):
Irving Wallace was a known author who was born on March 19, 1916 and died on June 29, 1990. As an American author and screenwriter, he was one of the best-selling authors of all time. As a result of his deeply researched novels, many of which have a sexual theme to them, he was well known. The author grew up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and attended Kenosha Central High School during his high school years. He lived at 6103 Eighteenth Avenue in Kenosha. In addition to being his father, Wallechinsky was also the father of Amy Wallace, an author and Olympic historian.
Irving Wallace Career:
During his teenage years, Wallace began writing stories for magazines and selling them to them.
He served in the Frank Capra unit in Fort Fox during the Second World War along with Theodor Seuss Geisel - known to many as Dr. Seuss - and continued to write for magazines while serving in the military.
He was also a member of the Army Air Force's First Motion Picture Unit while he was in the army.
Eventually, Wallace began to focus on becoming a screenwriter in Hollywood, which he found to be much more lucrative. 
In addition to his writing for the western television series Have Gun - Will Travel, he also contributed three scripts to the show.
