Glen Grunberger is a first-year fiction writer in the U of A’s graduate Creative Writing program. He is an attorney who had what he describes as a twenty year career interrupted by intermittent bouts with a writing addiction. His primary expertise was in environmental enforcement, and in the spring of 2000 was named by Texas Attorney General (and now U.S. Senator) John Cornyn as one of four “pioneers” of environmental crimes prosecution in Texas. Over the past ten years, he has maintained a significant pro bono and reduced rate caseload in areas as diverse as immigration, criminal, and family law and continues to serve as attorney and agent for a non-profit corporation dedicated to preservation of Native American spiritual ways. He has not been published but his short story, “Stick” placed in the top 30 in the mainstream literary category of the 73rd Annual Writers Digest writing competition. Glen received both his BA and his JD from the University of Texas at Austin where he earned membership in Phi Beta Kappa honorary society. This past summer, he moved from Texas to Tucson with his wife Sara, who teaches biology at Cholla High School, and their dog, Maya, who teaches them both how to be human.
