WEST TEXAS CHRISTMAS STORIES

By Tumbleweed Smith.

Glenn Dromgoole is the former editor of the Abilene Reporter-News who can’t seem to get writing out of his system. He has written 26 books and founded Abilene’s West Texas Book Festival held every September. His enterprise includes a store in downtown Abilene called Texas Star Trading Company that sells Texas books and gifts. “A lot of my books are real short,” says Glenn. “My first book was What Dogs Teach Us and it’s a collection of one-liners about things we learn from our dogs. The publisher got some cute photos to go along with it. Then I wrote What Cats Teach Us and What Horses Teach Us and a lot of stuff like that.” He became fascinated with Texas writers and their books, so he started writing a weekly column about them. He learned Texans didn’t know much about Texas authors so 52 times a year he writes about them.
