Bruce followed several absorbing hobbies during his lifetime, one of them, philately. He used this background to develop his first prototype website, Cyberstamp Club, inventing “virtual philately” in the process. Soon his site received The Golden Web Award for its content and creativity. On the strength of this success, Bruce became Webmaster for a group of luxury hotels. Subsequently he authored several high end guest house websites.
He is a self-published author and an active book editor. His book, FOUR MINUTES PAST MIDNIGHT, about his personal paranormal experiences, is available via Smashwords and the Amazon Kindle bookshelf ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005MZISAM ).
His works are published under the banner of "Good Hope Publishing (Digital)", Bruce's private publishing label. The name is derived from the place of his birth, known in history as "The Cape of Good Hope".
In addition, Bruce performs as a professional children’s magician in the greater metropolitan area of Cape Town. His popularity as FOO LING YU (From Tung-in-cheek, China) continues to grow.
When did your writing career begin?
As a true Gemini spirit I arrived on this planet with orders to WRITE.
What's the story behind your next book?
Now that I'm nearing second childhood its time to write the full story.
Historic fiction. Its about a gene of courage, or a valiant trait, that recurs through successive generations of a pioneer South African family ... in difficult times. You can sample my prose style over here: http://gallantechoes.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/sample-a-foretaste-the-prologue
The adventurous spirit of the early European pioneers in Africa is faithfully captured through these descriptive memoirs. Photographs included.
Here's something for those who like to take a trip down memory lane, especially when that lane is a jungle lane and you are surrounded by hundreds of bright, hungry eyes on a dark night.
An African gem.
Santa and the Blue Teddy and other tales
by Kao Shen.
Illustrated by Jeannie Walker.
A beautifully illustrated and engaging little volume of children's bedtime stories for the early reader. Very animal friendly.
Delightful imagery with timeless appeal.
Both entertaining and educational.
True life experiences of the paranormal from the author's early childhood to the present. These fascinating events prove that life is indeed stranger than fiction. They culminate in a revelation, hidden in full view throughout: The proverbial "Doomsday Clock" will go on ticking, for each and every one of us, beyond the figurative hour of "Midnight".

Well done Mark and thank you for your "no nonsense" approach to the world of ebook marketing.
