Meet the Author

Glenn was born in Los Alamos, New Mexico in 1952. In 1970 he moved to Albuquerque where he lived until 1974. He then moved north—very north.

He currently lives in Minnesota with his wife, 3 cats, a furniture shredding parrot, and a baby iguana. Comparing Minnesota to New Mexico, he says "Minnesota is a very cold place. It's whine country, where the grapes suffer."

Children of Usher evolved over many years. When Glenn first came to Minnesota he was amazed at how the people he met kept asking him about his experiences with Oppenheimer, Fermi, and Bethe. Since he had never met any of these greats, he would tell stories about what he knew, which was quite different from what people expected to hear. One day, his daughter finally convinced him to tell it like it really was, and a history was born.

Glenn has experience in capital formation; experience as a board member in public companies, including chairman and is a published investment strategies author. He has traveled extensively (on other people's dimes) including Europe and Japan where he was a consultant to NEC Corporation.

Glenn has more than a dozen U.S. patents and recently published The Investor's Guide to Nanotechnology and Micromachines with John Wiley & Sons. He graduated in political science and economics at the University of New Mexico. He received his M.A. in political science from the University of Minnesota.

About writing he says, "I can't think of a better way to earn 18¢/hour."
