Glen C. Kinnaird is a playwright and author living in New York City with his best friend, Tony the Theatre Dog. Kinnaird was inspired to create the "Tony the Theatre Dog" book series in 2010 when he and Tony joined friends at rehearsals for a national tour of a well-known Broadway show. An instant sensation with the cast and crew, Tony was soon nicknamed, "Tony the Theatre Dog". Kinnaird's first adventure story was developed to educate children about the world of performing arts.
Before moving to New York City in 2006 to follow a dream of becoming a playwright and author, Kinnaird earned a B. A. in Communications and Public Relations and a degree in Writing for Performace and Theatre from the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
He credits his parents, Leon and Clara Kinnaird, with always supporting his dreams and nurturing his imagination.
