Roger Bruner worked as a teacher, job counselor, and programmer analyst before retiring at sixty-two to pursue his dream of writing Christian fiction full-time.
Roger's newest novel is Rosa No-Name, the coming-of-age prequel to Found in Translation. He's especially excited about it because it's his wife and daughter's favorite of the twelve novels he's written. Familiarity with Found in Translation isn't necessary.
Although the original versions of his young adult Altered Hearts series are out of print, a new publisher has re-released Found in Translation and A Season of Pebbles (originally Lost in Dreams) as well as the previously unpublished Overshadowed. He's currently working on the final book in the series.
Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas released his speculative satire, The Devil & Pastor Gus, in 2014. The story is reminiscent of the biblical book of Job, C. S. Lewis's Screwtape Letters, and Stephen Vincent Benet's The Devil and Daniel Webster, although still thoroughly unique. The great reviews on Amazon add up to a 4.1 star average.
He's self-published two small books of some of his older, short works, Yesterday's Blossoms and More of Yesterday's Blossoms. Subscribe to his quarterly newsletter to receive a free Kindle copy of both books.
A guitarist, bass player, and songwriter, he is active in his church's choir, praise team, and nursing home ministry. Roger also enjoys reading, photography, web design, mission trips, and spending time with his wonderful wife, Kathleen, and their miniature dachshund. His daughter and her family live in Orlando. One stepdaughter lives in NYC; the other lives with her family in Las Vegas.
