About Me
I was born in England, moved to Newfoundland in my twenties and then moved againin my forties to Victoria BC, where I am very happily settled.
Like many people I have had an eclectic career path, one that has led me from teacher to architectural technician, book designer, illustrator, artist and now new author of a fantasy adventure book for 8 - 12 year olds.
I am a firm believer in the enduring power of imagination and creativity, and I'm very happy that "Finding the Time for Dragons" has found its way into so many children's lives. Most people ask me if it is illustrated, it isn't, but the cover art is mine.
Now retired, I am usually found in my studio, busy writing a sequel, while continuing to paint and draw as the spirit moves.

Glen Huser Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.glenhuser.com
About MeIf there is anything better than a life immersed in literature, I’m not sure what it is. My early love of reading and drawing led me to pursue a career as a teacher-librarian, artist, and an author of books for readers of all ages. In Edmonton I developed a magazine (“Magpie”) of children’s writing and illustrations and was writer-in-residence at a number of the city’s schools. Winning a Governor-General’s Award for my young adult novel Stitches opened many doors. I have lived in Vancouver since 2004 where I’ve continued to visit schools, conduct workshops, and create books for children and young adults. Recently I have been writing the text and lyrics for a series of picture books (packaged with a CD featuring a massed chorus of 200 Montreal schoolchildren) retelling familiar Greek myths.
