As a teacher and a learning resources consultant for Edmonton Public Schools, one of Glen Huser’s special projects was his development of “Magpie,” a quarterly featuring writing and artwork by students in the EPSB system (published from 1978 to 2008). For several years he was a sessional lecturer in children’s literature, information studies and creative writing at the U of A in Edmonton and UBC in Vancouver. His first novel Grace Lake was shortlisted for the 1992 W.H. Smith-Books in Canada First Novel Award. He has written several books for younger readers including the Governor Generals’ Award-winner Stitches and the GG finalist Skinnybones and the Wrinkle Queen. More recently he has crafted texts for picture books such as The Golden Touch and The Snuggly. Glen’s current home is Vancouver where he continues to write as well as pursue interests in art and film studies.
