Bruce began his writing career in radio, creating and producing commercials. As he moved through several advertising agencies, he continued to write and eventually moved into agency management. He later started his own marketing services company. He has written for almost every advertising and public relations medium where a spreadsheet and a handful of bullet points don’t tell the story, but words do. To the best of his knowledge, every word he wrote during his advertising career was true.

 

Which is what inspired him to write fiction.

 

 

Arvin Miller is an accountant in a small midwestern town who gets fired, gets desperate, then finds himself in a position he doesn’t want to be in.

One morning he hears a radio newscast and realizes he may be a suspect in a murder he knows nothing about.

As he struggles to clear his name and save his marriage, Arvin deals with the sudden death of a co-worker and develops an unexpected friendship with an illegal immigrant. As the plot spins up, Arvin helps to identify and uncover a transportation network that brings residents of Mexico to new homes in the US. Arvin travels from hot, musty storage units in the Midwest to a luxurious Mexican resort to uncover disparate facts and interpret unlikely occurrences. When his ad hoc team attempts to provide answers to questions that seem to beget only more questions, Arvin transforms from a shy, self-satisfied person to an inquisitive, sensitive, courageous man willing to go to great extremes to help individuals improve their lives.

A story of corruption in a news desert.

Lenore Goodman, a television news reporter in Iowa, rebels against new station management and creates her own digital news channel, struggling to gain access to news stories from the entrenched local political structure. When Clifton, a homeless veteran, takes advantage of an unexpected opportunity, it seems the two are destined to connect. He travels from skid row in Los Angeles through Grand Junction, Amarillo and Oklahoma City looking to put his life together.

Meanwhile, a small group of friends meet weekly to share a meal and outlooks on life in a small Iowa town. A couple of newcomers push the group to expand their horizons, and to ponder the relevance of local news coverage.
