Bruce Meyer's works have received very high international praise from numerous sources. The writer himself, perhaps, best explains his work:
"The challenge is for the writer to drill down into a fragment of the commonplace and make it into something more than anyone could have foreseen with the source. Isn't that what resides at the core of invention?"
"Stories are easy to begin but the real work resides in finishing them.."
"A successful piece of writing goes "Ping" and that is when all the parts come together and the memory of the piece doesn't leave the mind."
