Publisher info

Before writing fiction, Bruce was active in the food service and restaurant industry, as middle management. Also, the owner two small restaurants, and an active consultant for the college and university operations. Since retiring, he has enjoyed travel around the US in his motor home where ideas came to him in potential locales for mystery stories.
Bruce is now a semi-retired writer. He and Molly traveled around the US for over eight years, north to south, east to west. This gave him the opportunity to meet people from around the country and a few from Europe. Sadly, Molly is no longer with him. These experiences have provided fodder for his story ideas. Specifically, the locales where he lived for more than a few weeks. The only states that he hasn’t been to in his seventy-two years are Alaska and Maine. Maine is next on the list to visit.
Bruce documented several of the unusual circumstances that he encountered. These experiences lead him to write a blog. Then short stories, and now a novel. During this time, he also developed drafts for two other novels and outlines for three more. The first book takes place on the Napa Wine Train. His goal is to have Killer On The Train published and distributed in 2017. As a native Californian, he has enjoyed the scenic Napa Valley, the wineries, and even a meal aboard the train. After several reviews, he decided to revise the story in order to make it read better. The current edits and professional reviews allow him to produce the 2nd edition. In November 2018 there will be a distribution of a FREE ebook of the novel.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was unconsciously influenced by the renowned novel The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger. I was in the sixth grade when my teacher, Mr. Knowles, assigned it as required reading. We discussed this in class, though I have no recollection of these discussions nor the novel. After recently rereading this book I began to analyze my life of lost relationships, few successes, several failures, and my subsequent depression.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have many favorite books, but I am partial to several authors: Vince Flynn, David Balducci, James Patterson and for inspirational authors: Don Miguel Ruiz and K.L. Franklin.

Smashwords book reviews by Bruce Alan Jensen

  • Masks of Morality on April 30, 2017

    Masks of Morality is a story about middle class people who are unhappy with many aspects of today's society and government's lack of support. T.L. compares the attitudes and motivation of many others and the potential to create an environment better for their children. It influenced my attitude. Good guiding messages for We The People.
