Glenn P. Marcel grew up in rural, Cajun Louisiana in the sleepy 50s and turbulent 60s in a town where the doors to his parents' home were never locked. He enjoyed off-beat employment experiences while growing up, including picking okra, bailing hay, collecting bills, pumping gas, selling Greyhound bus tickets, building houses, waiting on tables, roughnecking and selling clothes. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University (B.S. '73 and J.D. '75), and is currently practicing law in Baton Rouge, where he lives with his wife, Kathy.
Chasing the Roswell Alien is Marcel's third novel to be published. Juggling The Truth (Charleston Press) was published in 1989. Chasing Elvis (The Invisible College Press) was published in 2004.
