Watch for the newly revised second edition of the crime thriller, RACE!: A HEI$T STORY, to release in December 2021, and for 2 additional crime thrillers (Rubric; The Man) to re-release by the spring and summer of 2022.


This white-knuckle chase crosses three decades and as many continents, a wild ride rife with countless twists and surprises at every turn, all wrapped up in the sexy world of fast cars, smart women, and high-stakes capers.

“Power-packed! Glenn A. Bruce is the only writer I know that can make dirt track racing into a page-turner heist story reminiscent of The Sting!” ~ Ty Spencer Vossler, Author of “Deep Mud”

Johnny, a mysterious biracial man, and his Asian-American female friend visit a Virginia dirt track—as out of place as their fancy BMW out in the parking lot—but they aren’t there for the “redneck racing.” They’ve come to scout young driver Tony Trivette.

Johnny then spins a twisted tale of war, smuggling, and treachery around conman Danny duBois, who vanished decades ago with everyone’s drug money. Johnny has a plan to recover it, but… add a racist Southern sheriff, a Black accomplice framed for murder, a Vietnamese bride left for dead, and the Drill Sergeant from Hell, and someone will likely die—if Johnny’s crazy plan works at all.

By the end, no one trusts anyone—with good reason—and the entire mission may not even be as promised. What is the mystery waiting across the finish line? And what moral lines will they all have to cross just to play this game? Who will live? Who will die? Is anyone even who they say they are? This is the nature of a complex heist, executed under a veil of revenge, greed, and murder.

“Put on your seatbelt. This is a wild-ass ride!” ~ Jim Hamilton, Author of “The Last Entry”

Can the human survivors learn to work with the two other species to create a home of peace and understanding?

The fight is over. The genocidal Crawlers are either dead or imprisoned, and the Singers in stasis are woken up.

An avid reader and writer since middle school, C.J. Sears is the author of the “This Fallen World” horror/thriller series. In 2013, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from Arkansas Tech University. After languishing a few years at a mundane job, C. J. set out to pursue his passion. Inspired by Twin Peaks and Resident Evil, he began working on what would eventually become The Shadow Over Lone Oak – the first of several books chronicling the adventures of eccentric Special Agent Llewyn Finch.

In the fall of 2016, C.J. gave his life to Christ. That faith now informs his storytelling and ongoing blog. He believes that fiction is a uniquely valuable medium for delivering both entertainment and essential truths. His emphasis is on the power of the parable rather than preachiness, and he affirms that no message should get in the way of a good story.

C.J.’s range of interests and hobbies include gaming, occasional poetry, swimming, and amateur photography. He mostly spends time with his family and loved ones, particularly his two rambunctious cats and silly goof dog. The quiet life suits him fine, but when a new vision of monsters and mystery beckons, he’s no stranger to answering the call.

It suffers a devastating blow when a young woman is murdered and her body displayed. Sheriff Willow Donahue is out of her depth with a cult on her doorstep, and Special Agent Llewyn Finch is the only one who can help her stop it—if Donahue can learn to trust in Finch and his unique abilities.

As Special Agent Finch digs into the case, a bizarre message in a dream sends him down an uncertain path. He must discover the truth behind these rumblings, and sort out fact from fiction, before it’s too late.
