About the Author

Glenn Martin was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin in 1924, where he lived for the first 18 years of his life. After graduation from high school and three years of service in the U.S. Army in World War II, he returned to Wisconsin to attend the Milwaukee State Teacher's College and the University of Wisconsin, where he graduated in 1949 with a degree in Journalism. For several years he worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota as a writer, director and producer of radio and television shows for a local advertising agency, and as a freelance actor and musician.

In 1951, he decided to attend the Boston University School of Theology, where he earned a graduate degree in 1954. In that same year, he was ordained a minister in the United Methodist Church, and served in the Minnesota Annual Conference for that denomination for 35 years. During his years in the ministry, Glenn was known for his preaching, teaching, and administrative skills; serving as the pastor of local churches, urban missioner, Radio-TV Consultant for the church, Christian Educator, camp director, and Lab School instructor.

After retirement in 1987, he did freelance writing and speaking. Several of his short stories and articles have been printed in national church magazines. Now he spends most of his time as a drummer in several musical groups, enjoying time with family and friends, and teaching senior study classes. Glenn and his wife, Margaret, were married in 1950. They have five daughters and eight grandchildren. They live in St. Anthony, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis.
