Glenn Turner was born in a village just outside Dudley, in England's Black Country. His family immigrated to Canada in 1969, and Glenn spent his high school years in Toronto; reading, writing, going out dancing and sneaking into jazz clubs.

Glenn moved to Ottawa in 1977 to attend the University of Ottawa. He has lived there more-or-less continuously ever since; working in student radio and the moving industry, going to school, and working as a teacher. For the last dozen years he has been a secondary school teacher-librarian.

Glenn has been writing for publication since 2001. His work has appeared in provincial and national journals for school libraries, and in a national Buddhist magazine. The Toronto Carrying Place: rediscovering Toronto's most ancient trail is his first book.
