Candle Man is a fantasy novel about a modern-day teenage boy who finds he is descended from a crime fighter in Victorian times. However there is more to the legend of the Candle Man than meets the eye, a dark secret covered up for over a century. There are two novels in the series so far: Candle Man: the Society of Unrelenting Vigilance and Candle Man 2: The Society of Dread. A third book is planned, called Candle Man 3: The Way of the Dodo.

Glenn will be Writer-in-Residence at Rock Road Library, Cambridge, CB1 7UG, from March 2018 to 2019. This will involve a couple of talks, a workshop about creating TV characters and a chance to chat at a regular 'surgery', at the library, the last Friday of each month. We can discuss all aspects of writing and even talk about Shaun the Sheep, one of the TV shows Glenn writes for!
