Glen C. Strathy started writing stories
when he was 11 years old and too shy to have a life. He eventually
found a life when he started acting in community theatre and met
other writers, actors, dancers, and artists. He discovered that the
best thing about performing arts (and other arts too) is that they
give people more freedom to be who they want to be. After spending
time as an actor, teacher, and freelance writer, he returned to his
first love, fiction and wrote Dancing on the Inside, a
novel for ages 9-12.
Glen C. Strathy earned an M.A. in
English from the University of Western Ontario, and graduated from
the Artist in Community Education program at Queen's University,
Kingston. He co-authored two non-fiction books and belongs to the
Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC) and the Society of
Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). His website
provides advice to budding authors.
