Glen Palmer was born in Derbyshire, United Kingdom on the 30th October 1975. He spent the first 5 years of his life in Derbyshire before his parents moved his family over to South Africa. He had a pretty normal upbringing but found he had a flair for captivating storytelling. In fact he was so good at it, for years, he convinced his brother he was an alien. He used his storytelling skills though out his school career writing short stories and poems in a little black book. His secondary school English teacher was so impressed with his writing skills that she made him the editor of his school's newspaper.
After school he drifted from job to job, not knowing what he wanted in life, and soon his passion for writing dwindled somewhat. It was only after returning to England in 2000, that he decided to reignite his passion for writing.
He is a regular contributor to magazines and has published articles for Dogs Monthly, FH&L, Diver and Getaway to name a few, and holds regular writing workshops, helping new and upcoming writers develop their skills.
He now lives in Barnsley with his wife Marie-Clare and his English Springer Spaniel Shaggy, where he continues to write daily.
Besides his loving wife and faithful dog, his other passions include Scuba Diving, Herpatology and of course, writing.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I like to search Amazon and smash words for things I might be interested in. Also I belong to a few online book clubs and forums, so I find good books by recommendations form them too.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Wow, that's a hard one. Well, I think the first short story I ever wrote was a story about a boy that found a secret portal to another universe. It was quite silly as I was only young. In fact, I think I still have it somewhere.
