The son of a zoo director and an art therapist, I live in the midwest United States with my wife and young son. I have thirty years of martial arts experience and am an instructor in Jeet Kune Do and Kali under the legendary Dan Inosanto. I love to cook, teach and spend time with friends and family. I got my MFA in 2007 and have continued to study every aspect of writing since then.

I really love helping authors learn more about writing. I've got lots of posts about writing novels and screenplays on my blog. Please check it out! http://www.bruce-elgin.com

I'm also an Ambassador and am in charge of the @improveyourwriting profile, where you can go through a whole course in fiction writing. Please check it out!
