About this author

If I come to a point where I can’t think of anything, I will sometimes brainstorm. Take a piece of note paper and just scribble anything that comes to mind. Sometimes this leads to an idea and sometimes not. If I really can’t think of anything, I just put it aside and do something else until I get an idea that will send me back to the manuscript. (less)

Dark Legacy

I remember feeling an over-whelming sense of accomplishment when I typed the words ‘then end’ at the conclusion of The Vance Legacy. Although I knew that there was still a great deal of work ahead of me, I took a few moments to enjoy that good feeling. The story had ended and I gave very little thought to the surviving characters of the novel.

The book was published in February 2009 a...

The Vance Legacy (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 20, 2009 11:30AM
Description: In The Vance Legacy, Ms Glenn explores the cataclysmic consequences of unrevealed family secrets. The story takes place thirty years before the Civil War and moves from the bigotry of class separation in old Philadelphia society to the violent dogma of a southern tobacco plantation. The turbulent lives of two women traverse because of the corrupt and prejudice society of the south and the love they share for the same man. Their relationship begins as a bitter rivalry but through the deception, passion, and pain that they both endure, grows a compassion for each other that neither understands. The Vance Legacy is woven around a powerful southern family whose tyrannical patriarch refuses to right the wrongs committed during his lifetime or even acknowledges their existence. His death leaves his family a legacy of lies and misdeeds that will eventually tear his family asunder.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Great name. I was wondering if we could start with a book that we'd both like to read.

Frances Hey, you added books on your page. Good job. I also want to read Les Meserables and The Count. Maybe the first of the year we could read them together. What fun.
