Bill Lace wrote the fictional novel TEARS OF ESPERANZA to share stories from Arizonans swept up in the immigration debate. TEARS placed second in the 2013 Arizona Literary Contest published fiction category. It was his first venture into public writing, and he got hooked. An engineer by training and a federal law enforcement agent in employment, Bill is working on a science fiction novel. His favorite T-shirt notes the temperature at which book-paper catches fire, and burns.
