I’m happy to be participating in the Rave Reviews Book Club BACK-TO-SCHOOL BOOK & BLOG BLOCK PARTY and I’m very excited to have the opportunity to profile some of my books. Although I branch out to other genres and styles from time to time, I tend to write mystery/crime/suspense novels, usually with a theme of some sort of injustice that has occurred. I love to write so the list of books is constantly growing!
My Books:
Available as ebook and paperback. Links are to Amazon but most books also available on Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Smashwords, and more.

When eighteen-year-old Cynthia Holt takes a job at a former sanitarium, now operating as an assisted living center, she discovers there is something more occurring than providing the elderly with housing and care. Something very strange is going on behind the locked door of Room 913. After she is warned to stay away from the room and to not discuss it or the occupant with her co-workers, she is even more intrigued. And suspicious. Letting her curious nature guide her, she immediately begins asking questions. When she finds that Room 913 has been closed off; locked and sealed for many years, her curiosity turns to concern. Though rumors abound, no one seems inclined to talk about it. Not giving up so easily, Cynthia persists in her inquisitive pursuit until she finds out the truth - or does she?

The justice system is just a system, not a just system.

Sentenced to fifteen years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Ethan Rafferty has one thing on his mind—payback! With his time up, the ex-con is free to pursue his mission of revenge. The District Attorney, Mariana Clark, who, during the trial suppressed evidence that would've exonerated him, is the focus of his vengeance. Intent on making her life miserable, Ethan employs a variety of tactics to antagonize and torment the woman. Unable to retaliate through the courts, considering her role in the previous trial, Mariana decides to fight fire with fire. Soon, their feud escalates to a point where neither imagined it would go.

Which one will prevail, Ethan or Mariana? Who will win? Can either? Or, are both of them bound to a destiny produced by a Miscarriage of Justice?

What would you do if Child Protective Services showed up on your doorstep with an army of Sheriff’s deputies and tried to remove your three-year-old from your home? Knowing there's no justification for their action and the court documents they presented are fabricated, would you stand by or fight to protect your child?


Over My Dead Body  explores the deadly reaction and consequences when a protective father, Jeff Blake, tries to prevent the state from  taking his daughter. The director of Child Protective Services uses his position to exact a personal vendetta in removing three-year-old Ashley from the Blake’s home.

The situation quickly becomes violent as Jeff resorts to the only response he feels he has. By the end of the short encounter, three people are dead. Ironically, Ashley is still taken, so the tragic fiasco gained nothing.

Matters are further complicated when Amy, the wife and mother, winds up in a mental ward due to the trauma she witnessed in her home. Jeff and Amy’s daughter is placed in temporary foster care, while the family’s attorneys attempt to salvage what they can and re-unite the family. The police, as well as the Courts, understandably, are not too concerned with the needs of the family and it seems the entire justice system is against them.

Complete with many twists of fate, the story looks at the common problems of a typical family caught between love and the law.


by Bruce A. Borders


When a teenage boy, who thinks he knows it all, leaves home in search of a better life, he finds out the hard way what everyone must learn—growing up isn’t an easy thing to do.

Leaving home at fifteen, Kyle Davis’ path to adulthood takes him on an eventful ride, and at times a dangerous one. His firsthand experiences with the cruel realities of a callous world drive home the point that he has a lot to learn and a long ways to go.

Unwilling to admit his mistakes, he flounders a while before finally accepting life for what it is—hard work. It takes considerably more time for him to reach the point of going home and apologizing. That’s when he discovers the world didn’t stop to wait for him. Home isn’t quite the way he remembers it, and he sees how drastically things can change.

Still, certain things remain the same; principles and values are a constant. It isn’t a persons age, location or where they are in life that determines when they’ve become an adult. Kyle realizes The Journey is more than merely miles traveled. The road to maturity, whether literal or figurative, takes a person only as fast as they are willing to go. Yet, at some point, everyone has to make The Journey.

All cats can be a little strange! Some might even be crazy! But it takes a smart cat to pull off some of the things this lovable cat named Stupid does! Follow his adventures, told in his own words. (Based on the life of a real cat, who thanks to his head-shaking behavior, earned the nickname of Stupid).

The Not-So-Politically-Correct Books on Fighting Terrorism.

Cruelly honest and unabashedly patriotic, slightly offensive but extremely effective, Wynn Garrett is America’s answer to the problem of domestic terrorism. When the Department of Homeland Security, assigns him the job of eliminating the terrorist threat by any means necessary, they expect him to follow a few reasonable guidelines. He turns out to be anything but reasonable.

A proud American, Wynn Garrett is determined America emerge victorious, and employs questionable tactics in his personal war on terrorism—much to the consternation of his superiors in Washington. They constantly attempt to curb his reckless behavior, but to no avail.


And coming soon...

  1. I love the layout and the look of this site! What a cool way to profile your books. I'm a fan of Author Bruce A. Borders, so I'm sure the titles which I haven't read yet, are just as good as the one I have read (OVER MY DEAD BODY), which is one of my all-time favorites. Good luck today and I wish upon you so many comments and such a lively party, that you are at a loss for words! (Just trying to slow you down on writing all those darned books! LOL).

    Enjoy the day! You're up alone!

  4. Very nice Bruce. I can even get a rustic wooden shelf to put all your books on. Have a great day.

  5. I'm very intrigued with Inside Room 913, but I'm afraid it'll keep me up at night. (I've become a wuss in my later years). ;-) I agree with Nonnie that Over My Dead Body sounds great, but realistic fiction is too REAL for me. lol! I'm a happily divorced mom with a son, and the idea of someone trying to take him away from me...well, I think I'd lose it. lol!

    The Journey sounds GREAT for my students. I teach high school, and many of them are at that rebellious stage where they think that they can make it on their own. I will definitely share your book with them. Maybe it'll knock some sense into them. ;-)

  12. Oh Wow, Bruce! You're a book writing factory!!! lol :-D Over my Dead Body is now finally on my TBR list - I'd kind of been shying away from it because of working in the 'family' courts and know these situations all too well from both sides of the fence. However, you come at it from an unusual angle that I know is plausible as the 'authorities' are, regrettably, not always the good guys and I've seen events unfold that are more than 'thriller-worthy' develop all too quickly.
    Writers should never shy away from showing real life as it is - much kudos to you for doing it so so well! :-)
