Bruce James Wilkinson was born in the State of Washington in 1949. He studied creative writing at Washington State University. He has lived and written in the U.K. and Spain, on the east and west coasts of the United States, in Montana and, since 2012, among the Andes mountains in the Republic of Ecuador. His recent work includes two short story collections and a novel published under the imprint of Pork Pie Publishing in Cuenca, Ecuador. Happily retired from gainful employment, he reads and writes under the influence of coffee every day, and tries to remember to wash the dishes, do the laundry, fertilize Bernie the Lime Tree and refill the bird bath.
