Background Information

I have lived in northern Illinois all my life. Growing up my family moved from place to place due to my fathers work.

The biggest influence in my life for writing was my reading teachers in Junior High school. They had the class read books such as: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Odyssey, Great Expectations, Tom Sawyer. Also many short stories which included To Build a Fire, my favorite, and The Most Dangerous Game. If I had a book that influenced my life it would probably be 'Mutiny on the Bounty' because its theme is men standing up for what is right and fair.
I have finished eleven screenplay's, three books and numerous articles and poems.


Current Work: The Winds of Time


Deceit, treachery, mild sex, violence, humor all are molded together in this work of history versus the future. See below for a short description of the future.

Ready for Sale at Xlibris.com!

As far as my work life goes I have been a manager for twenty years and been a craftsman in a miniature collectable workshop. For eighteen years I made twelfth inch scale houses, working sash windows, working doors, molded plastics, and a myriad of other wooden products. The houses sold in a price range from two hundred dollars up one hundred thousand. Also, I made such things as a quarter inch scale version of Monticello and its grounds, been involved in making a half inch scale version of the old and new Supreme courts and the Jefferson State room. Monticello and the Jefferson room are in museums and the Supreme Court is in the Supreme Court building in Washington D.C. Among other things I made a twenty-seven room mansion and made people happy by recreating their childhood home. Currently I am a postal carrier.

Additional Information

Winds of Time is available Now at Amazon and Xlibris! Could this be our future? A new book by Bruce Alan Humphrey Winds of Time A short description: Winds of Time is the fictional account of Tarl Cray. A specialized covert operative, Tarl has been told he must contact the leaders of the other three breakaway territories. He must convince them that their one time nation must re-unite in a combined defense against invaders. To accomplish his task Tarl has been given specific orders and lack of rules. America has fragmented into four unique territories. The Southeast, where Tarl is based, has built itself on scientific and medical disciplines. Tarl is a direct product of their scientists. Drugs introduced into his body give him abilities never realized before the break up. Medical and scientific breakthroughs, due to the lack of government restrictions, advanced exponentially. His first destination, the Northeast, is more or less agricultural. However, a strong security force keeps a heavy air of oppression over the populace. The mid-western section, relatively calm and peaceful, trades with the other territories using its vast agriculture as barter. Its position in the former union is by far the strongest. In food there is power. Tarl must make contact with the governor and convince him that with his help he could stop the takeover. On his trek west, Tarl discovers a cave buried deep within the mountains. In this cave he discovers evidence of a past civilization, on the order of eighty thousand years old. He finds machines and weapons that dwarf, yet somehow mimic the tools he has been provided. Also he discovers an enigmatic and wise cracking helper who helps him on his final quest before returning to the southeast sector. The west is by far the most evil. Degrading into a feudalistic, power driven territory, where death and survival is a every day fact of life. Security forces push the populace to their limits while the governors and their families live the life of luxury. But, an underground movement has arisen and it is these people Tarl must enlist for help. Unfortunately, Tarl learns too late that he has been tricked.
