Here's an informal bio on the site's founder and publisher.

Bruce L. Cook is an AVID Tutor for Hampshire Middle School (Hampshire, IL). He also serves as reviewer and editor for IGI Global. Current nonfiction publications: “Communication in the Development of Ethnic and Racial Conflict,” in Fundamental Theories of Ethnic Conflict (Kenya: Syokimau Cultural Centre, in press). “The Voice of Social Media, 1997-2018,” Encyclopedia of Organizational Knowledge, Administration, and Technologies (Hershey, PA: IGI Global, in press).

My academic background includes a B.A. in radio-TV from Ohio Wesleyan University, an M.A. in Speech Arts (Telecommunications and Film) from San Diego State University, and a Ph.D. in Communication from Temple University in Philadelphia.

I have published a monograph, Understanding Pictures in Papua New Guinea, and various articles, etc. I served as a literary agent, which filled me with skepticism when it came to submitting my own work. Early this year I published my life's work, Harmony of Nations, in Germany. This English language novelcan be accessed via I am nearing completion of another international novel, The Afhan Rug.

You can find me in last issues of Marquis' Who's Who in America.

I look forward to hearing from you.  Click here.
