High Country Writers to Feature Local Author Glenn A. Bruce at Sept. 8 Meeting at Watauga Library

Glenn A Bruce is the speaker for the regular monthly program sponsored by High Country  Writers at the Watauga County Library, Thursday, September 8, 10 a.m. to noon. His topic is: “The Importance of Honest Self-Evaluation and Endless Editing.” The public is invited.

Glenn Bruce is one of the area’s most prolific and productive writers. His screen plays include the movie Kickboxer, as well as episodes of Walker: Texas Ranger, Baywatch, and Assaulted Nuts, and he is an award-winning video writer-director. His short stories, articles and essays have appeared in numerous publications, regionally, nationally and internationally, and he was the final judge for the Brilliant Flash Fiction Fall 2015 Best Flash Fiction writing contest. His play A Man’s World has been accepted by the In/Visible Theatre, and he recently optioned his novel Rubric to Luculent Films. Glenn teaches Screenwriting and Acting for the Camera at Appalachian State University.

If that were not enough, he has (at last count) eight published novels and is actively working on three more. His most recent, Dear Me!: or The History of the End of the World as We Knew It, Told As I See It, or More Accurately, Saw It, by Daniel R. Olafson, is a comedic “last man on earth” tale of the near future. Glenn’s story, “By the River,” is a finalist in the Defenestrationism.net contest which people can read and vote through Sept 4.
