Sharlee Glenn talks. . .
I can’t remember ever not wanting to be a writer. I fell in love with books very early, and knew that someday I wanted to write them. Some of my favorite books as a child were Snipp, Snapp, and Snurr and the Red Shoes (this one inspired me to want to be a chimney sweep!) The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel, and later, Harriet the Spy, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler.
Now I’m all grown up and living my dream! No, I’m not a chimney sweep, but I am a writer. I write my books on a Toshiba laptop computer that sits on an old secretary (a sort of desk) that once belonged to my husband’s grandfather. I live near the mountains in Utah with my husband, my five children, a very literary dog named Kipling, an escape-artist cat named Houdini, a trickster hedgehog named Hazel, and a stuck-up beta fish named Flame. Besides writing, I love reading, doing yoga, hiking in the mountains, listening to good music (especially when it’s performed by my children), and playing with bubble wrap.
