I became interested in writing during my freshman year in college (fall 1998). I was deeply involved in playing Ancient Anguish, a text- based fantasy multi-user dimension (MUD) game. One of the perks of completing enough quests in the game was the opportunity to become a coder for the game.
The joy at seeing my creation come to life got me interested in the creative process, so I decided to pursue a degree in creative writing from Penn State University. I joined the Penn State Schuylkill Campus Collegiate staff, interned at PA Business Central and Voices of Central Pennsylvania, and became a summer correspondent for the Pottsville Republican.
In Dec. 2002, I graduated from Penn State University with a B.A., English, with an emphasis in nonfiction writing. Following graduation, I enlisted in the Army as a print journalist. During my roughly 6 years in the Army, I covered multiple story types (sports, hard news, features), earning several awards. My work has appeared in multiple newspapers worldwide to include Military.com (readership: 6,023,048); Stars and Stripes, Washington, DC (readership: 1,000,000); and the Associated Press, New York, NY. One of my stories, Girl Waits for Second Chance to See, made the front cover of Stars and Stripes.
My work in the Army garnered me numerous awards, including the 2007 U.S. Army Forces Command runner-up Journalist of the Year (one of the top 14 journalists Army wide), 2005 Installation Management Southwest Region Journalist of the Year (one of the top seven journalists Army-wide). Other individual Army awards include editor of the 2007 top Army field publication, second place in 2007 for story series, and second place in 2006 for feature articles.
I am also a graduate of the Christian Writers Guild and have had work published in devotionals such as Soul Journey.
Glen writes both fiction and nonfiction from his forty-year career and experience as a trial lawyer and consultant in international business and banking.
His nonfiction work as the observer in The Prison Trilogy tells the tales in chronological order of how he came to be a lawyer for a Wall Street Journal heiress and her gay husband and how that representation landed him in federal prison. That is the first in The Trilogy. The second book tells the story of his cell mate, Colonel George Trofimoff, serving life for spying for the KGB, and the final book of The Trilogy describes the prisoners, Glen's experiences and takes a hard look at the American criminal justice system.

She has stood in the bedroom where Hemingway was born and the foyer where he ended his life and has visited all the places in between.
If you read the complete human history, then you would know the difference between, those ignorant statements in the bible and the coherent narrative, in world hostory textbook. The [word] history, means the recorded account the of human community--how people lived on a daily basis, how they shared ideas, how they ruled and were ruled, and how they fought.The first 200,000 year segment of human history, is well documented in our world history book today. The modern religion of Christianity Judaism and Islam, which purported a spurious idea of Allah/God, is not authentic competition for the untural human history. The biblical creation of people is fiction, and the principal characters are phantoms, with no literal place of redsiden--or contact with humans. The relegation of women by a God in the bible, should not be assumed as something real, because the bible lies about who God is. By the lie about God makes it impossible for there to be a Jesus Christ. The bible is about criminal behavior.
Before we get into the core of our study, we are sharing tips on how to use your Bible. You'll need these tips as you journey through this divorce, so we thought we'd use one of our shows to show you how to use your Bible.
Many of you may already know how to use your Bible, but if you haven't picked up a Bible in a while, then join us as we teach you how to find scripture on your own, how to use references and a Concordance, and learn why the books (what books??) of the Bible are arranged like they are, and find out just what kind of books they are. Just like a library contains non-fiction books, fiction books, history books, how-to books, and much more, so is the Bible a "LIBRARY" of sorts, but the good news, the Bible never will contain a "fictional book" because it is all true, and it is the inspired Word of God. The Bible does contain true stories, historical books, prophecy books, non-fiction, and much more!
The Bible is made up of "verses", and each one of those verses can be found by looking up it's "address". When scholars were bringing the Bible together, they realized that the Bible contained so much material, that it would take forever for someone to find a certain story in the Bible, so all of scripture is categorized by verses. You will be a whiz in looking up scripture after you listen to this show, and then, the following week, we will begin our Bible studies on divorce issues.
Remember, if you are not brushed up on your Bible skills, this show will be extremely important for you to know, so that you can be interactive and participate in our Journal Challenge every week.
Join us on Monday, June 29 2015 or listen to our archives for this informative episode of Treasured Word Radio. And we'd love to hear from you from time to time. Post a comment at the bottom of our screen...and we'll be back to interact with you!
