Glenn Lazar Roberts

Biography

Former taxi driver, security guard, cook, real estate salesman, Glenn in pre-Internet days worked for a fiction publishing house as a submissions reviewer and editor. A lover of languages, Glenn has degrees in history, anthropology, and law, has taught college, and has translated both Russian and Arabic professionally. He is an international attorney, having done graduate work in Soviet Uzbekistan and represented members of the Wagge tribe of the Central Highlands of Papua New Guinea in legal negotiations. Glenn has written a short story in Arabic, and writes reviews of books published in several languages for SiriusReviews.com. As a writer, Glenn wrote his first novel (Maalstrom) at the age of twenty, and he is still writing the greatest weird books that you’ve never read, including his latest, Quantum Marlowe, now available from TWB Press and available here on Smashwords. (Note: there is no such thing as a Canali suit!)

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I currently have several books in the pipeline. Two are novels including one satire about a down-to-earth guy who decides he's Not Gonna Take It Anymore. The other is a horror novel about a young man who must keep the exact same change in each pocket or very bad things will happen. To find out more, consider supporting my work at SubscribeStar.com. Writing books is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Believe it or not, corporate publishers are not lined up to publish comedic works, especially social satires that have fun with Social Justice Warriors like Maggie, the Radiated Lesbian Nun. Many sites have banned me completely. Also in the works is a non-fiction work (I prefer the word 'faction') analyzing the phenomenon of Political Correctness. Not yet completed.

For background about me and my writing, you can hear a radio interview from 2017 at https://equuspublishing.com/?page_id=16/ .
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The Political Correctness of the publishing industry.
