Glenn was born in Ireland and moved to Scotland when he was eighteen, where he lives with his wife and three daughters. Glenn works for the NHS and enjoys reading, football and playing video games with his kids.
Operation Sabre is a fast-paced adventure story about three young people (they are all 12 years old) who are recruited to the youth division of MI5 which is called MI2. Paul and Rachel Fox’s father has been kidnapped and the young people (Paul, Rachel, and Paul's friend, Sharav... Sharav is a boy) are drawn into a race against time to uncover the mole (code name Sabre) and find their father before it is too late. His life is in danger. They embark on a treacherous journey across the UK and Ireland where an unknown enemy is desperately trying to kidnap them before they reach MI2 headquarters in London. It turns out that the enemy is trying to kidnap Paul or Rachel in order to make their Father talk. Rachel is blackmailed. Paul and Sharav return to Scotland in order to clear Rachel's name and to locate Mr. Fox. The book is filled with thrills, danger, unexpected twists and at times humour that will keep the reader enthralled right to the end.
Target audience is 10-14-year-old boys and girls. But could you design for the older age range please?

Pintado is SOOOO INCREDIBLE. He takes your vision, your brief however vague or short it may be, and somehow turns it into a tangible incredible masterpiece.
