Most of his books are still in print, including What Dogs Teach Us, which was a New York Times Bestseller Plus selection for eight weeks, reaching Number 24 in Hardcover Nonfiction in 1999. He followed up with What Cats Teach Us and What Horses Teach Us, as well as What Dogs Teach Us II and What Grandchildren Do. 

Many of Glenn's books are more regional in focus – Abilene Stories; West Texas Christmas Stories; Coleman Springs USA; and Good Night Little Texan, a companion volume to his popular children’s books Good Night Cowboy and Good Night Cowgirl.

Glenn and his wife Carol own Texas Star Trading Company – the National Store of Texas – in downtown Abilene, featuring Texas books, gourmet and gifts.

Upcoming Meetings in 2017

The Abilene Writers Guild began its 48th year on June 1, 2016. If you would like to recommend someone as a speaker, now is the time! Contact Program Chair Barbara Rollins, barbara.rollins@gmail.com, with your specific suggestions.

Remember, we work on a limited budget! Our speakers receive a small honorarium and a one-year membership.  We also have a specific meeting date and time for which speakers must be available.

Barbara would also like to hear from you if you would be interested in presenting a program, or if you have a writing-related subject you would like to learn more about.
