Bruce Olav Solheim was born in Seattle, Washington, to Norwegian immigrant parents. A disabled veteran, he served for six years in the US Army as a jail guard in West Germany, and later as a warrant officer helicopter pilot at the 82nd Airborne Division. As a civilian, Solheim worked as a defense contractor at Boeing for five years, then went on to earn his Ph.D. in history from Bowling Green State University in 1993, with his main field being US foreign policy. Bruce was the first person in his family to go to college and is currently a distinguished professor of history at Citrus College in Glendora, California, where he has taught for 26 years. As a Fulbright Professor and Scholar, Dr. Solheim taught at the University of Tromsø in northern Norway in 2003.

In 2001, Dr. Solheim founded the veterans program at Citrus College and, in 2007, co-founded (along with Ginger De Villa-Rose and former East Los Angeles Vet Center Director Manuel Martinez) the first in the nation college transition course for recently returned veterans called Boots to Books.

A prolific writer, Solheim has published eleven books and written ten plays, six of which have been produced. In addition to his academic books/journal/novel (The Nordic Nexus: A Lesson in Peaceful Security, On Top of the World: Women’s Political Leadership in Scandinavia and Beyond, Viet Nam Generation Journal, Women in Power: World Leaders since 1960, The Vietnam War Era: A Personal Journey, Ali’s Bees, and Making History: A Personal Approach to Modern American History), he has published several book about the paranormal.

Since the age of four, Solheim has experienced angels, demons, ghosts, cryptids, telepathy, psychokinesis, mediumship, and alien contact. He recounts his experiences with high strangeness in his Timeless Trilogy books: Timeless, Timeless Deja Vu, and Timeless Trinity, and a book about his contact with a non-human intelligence (NHI)—Anzar the Progenitor. His latest book is We Are the Aliens: A Case of Alien-Human Integration. From 2018–2020, Dr. Solheim taught a Paranormal Personal History course at Citrus College.

Alongside his list of published works, Solheim has also published two comic book series. Snarc (issues 1 and 2) features an alien hybrid character of the same name, and Dr. Jekyll Alien Hunter (issues 1 and 2) with a female lead character. Bruce is married to Ginger and has four children (one serving in the US Air Force) and two grandsons.
