Biography

After decades of doing office work from which he escaped to read books and occasionally write something in the evenings or on the weekends, this writer was finally able to retire and moved back to the dry heat land of saguaros, Gila monsters, and bark scorpions (while they can be a low maintenance pet, they are not amenable to leash training).

In spite of the typical reactions to this writer’s stories, it is hoped that some one some where will read them and might find a small value in them and be inspired to either chuckle, smile, or consider an idea which is new to them. To encourage that possible outcome which might briefly brighten someone’s life, this writer’s stories are being offered to the reader to enjoy for free (click "Buy" and offer $0.00). Hopefully, you’ll find that you are receiving more than you paid for them. If you like a story, please consider sharing a donation with the writer by buying another copy and giving it to a friend.

In regards to the stories which Glynn Glenn requested this writer rewrite and release under his own name, or inspired him to write (such as The FIRST Attitude), many of them are what Glynn Glenn has described as ‘love stories’. Although some of those stories contain detailed descriptions of intimate activities between consenting adults, they are not intended to arouse the reader as is the intent with erotic stories. Indeed, those who typically like to read erotica will probably be disappointed with love stories. Instead, Glynn Glenn attempted to encourage people to treat their current or future intimate partner with gentle respect instead of acting like animals which are driven by their hormones to breed. The stories will also hopefully encourage people to take a more gentle and usually a more gradual approach to intimacy than most people would be inclined to consider. In that sense, Glynn Glenn’s longest love story might be viewed as a guide which provides a step by step process (in a more readable story format) for people to possibly follow as they gently expand their interaction from sharing physical affection in the form of hugs and kisses to sharing intimate pleasure (described in Her Catalyst as a journey of touching). Those people who are interested in reading romance stories (where, after experiencing several lovers, the characters finally believe they’ve found Mr./Ms. Right) will most likely be disappointed with Glynn Glenn’s love stories even though the category of ‘romance’ is probably the most appropriate. In contrast, love stories, as least as Glynn Glenn has described them, are stories where two consenting adults either develop or already have a friendship which is based on acceptance, respect, trust, and care and the story describes how they grow closer together as people and eventually mutually share the pleasure of full intimacy.
