About Dr. Tom Glenn
Author Dr. Tom Glenn has worked as an intelligence operative, a musician, a linguist, a cryptologist, a government executive, a care-giver for the dying, and a leadership coach. Many of his prize-winning books and short stories came from the better part of the thirteen years in which he shuttled between the U.S. and Vietnam on clandestine signals intelligence assignments before being evacuated under fire when Saigon fell.
The declassification of Dr. Glenn’s work in Vietnam led to a plethora of presentations, interviews, and articles. His Vietnam novel-in-stories, “Friendly Casualties,” was published in 2012, and his novel, “No-Accounts,” published by Apprentice House of Baltimore, came out in 2014. As a result, he was named a featured author by the Gaithersburg Book festival in 2014. Apprentice House published his novel, “The Trion Syndrome,” in November 2015. The Naval Institute Press brought out his novel, “Last of the Annamese,” in March 2017. “Coming to Terms” and “Secretocracy” were released in 2020.
“My writing is all novels and short stories, fiction by definition. Except that everything I depict in my writing really did happen,” said Dr. Glenn. “Because I have lived a life overflowing with adventures, nothing I could invent would equal the real experiences I have had. So I tell true stories, but I turn them into fiction by attributing the true events to fictional characters rather than to myself or someone I have known.”
Dr. Glenn has his B.A. in Music, a master’s in Government, and a doctorate in Public Administration and is trained as a musician, actor, and public speaker. He has toured the country lecturing on leadership and management, trained federal executives, and was the dean of the Management Department at the National Cryptologic School. He is also a reviewer for The Washington Independent Review of Books and the Internet Review of Books where he specializes in books on Vietnam. He has been given the “Last Man Out” award by 43 of his subordinates after Saigon fell and he risked his life to get them and their families out safely.
Born November 23, 1936, in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Glenn is fluent in Chinese, Vietnamese, Latin, German, Spanish, French, and Italian. He is a member of the American Legion and in his spare time he enjoys listening to music.
