Glenn Blackshear is a 30+ year veteran of the Computer Science industry, with a B.S. in Information Systems from the University of Texas and a PhD from the proverbial School of Hard Knocks. In the early 2000s, he lost a lifetime of work, including multiple unpublished novels and dozens of short stories, songs, and poems, having placed too much faith in technology. Wounds healed. scars faded, and lessons learned, now he is compelled to write or die trying.
