About Peter Glassman
As a retired physician I'm devoting my time to writing novels, memoir-based fiction and short stories. My life as an author of fiction began in 2003 after a few years at Toastmasters International delivering captivating stories and speeches. I believe literature should be educational, fun, serious, full of feelings and always with a touch of fantasy and a thread of truth. Like all my novels true lifetime situations are interwoven with suspenseful and intriguing storylines. My 11 novels and short story book bear that philosophy out. Reviews of my books in Amazon.com have been 4.5-5-star. I wrote THE ADJUSTMENT CLINIC in retirement because I was too afraid to expose what was happening in major drug companies when I was working there. I live with my wife in San Antonio near my daughter and her family with four of my grandchildren. My goal as an author is to publish several novels a year. My latest effort is my heroin smuggling thriller, THE HAPPY HAT, published March 3, 2015.
