Featured Interview With Sandra Glosser
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Thank you for taking the time to read my biography. A product of South Florida and now living on the Western Slope of Colorado. From the ocean to the mountains. I moved to the center of the country due to constant travel for my speaking career. I have enjoyed a 30-year career as an international motivational speaker/ trainer with expertise in law enforcement training. And my little friend, Bacci Bogie, traveled with me for 500,000 air miles…read all about it in my book. I now have a funny, loving boy named Paco. He is also a Maltese but twice the size of Bacci. I love him dearly.
My clients included top-notch corporations such as IBM, Bank of America and Wells Fargo. One day I was home, in San Francisco, watching television and saw a group of police officers out on the Bay with teenagers. I thought that looked like fun and a ‘light bulb’ went off in my head. I picked up the phone and called the police department’s training unit and asked for a meeting. To make a long story short, that meeting resulted in a two-year contract with the San Francisco Police Department and acted as a springboard for a career training law enforcement officers across the country.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
My first experience as a writer started with the Dallas Morning News as an obituary writer. My bizarre sense of humor helped me maintain a sense of well-being and the opportunity to write feature stories for the newspaper increased my appetite to become a writer.
When I moved to Aspen, Colorado, I wrote a newspaper column and then penned a book about a local police officer who moved to the community as an undercover agent. I also enjoyed a fourteen-year experience as a host for my local television show.
Writing became a hobby as I pursued my speaking career traveling across the country with my magnificent four- pound Maltese dog named Bacci Bogie. I started writing this book twelve years ago and it was just published. This is a dream come true and I hope you will share this dream with me.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love Hemmingway and my favorite is “A Moveable Feast.” When I started my speaking career, I gravitated toward self-help books. Writers like Stuart Wilde, Rollo May and Eckhart Tolle inspired me as a public speaker as well as a professional trainer.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
“My Name Is Bacci Bogie Frequent Flyer Extraordinaire”… written with love and tears about a 4-pound adorable Maltese. His human-like antics drew people to him where ever he went. People stood in line for his autograph as he performed funny tricks. Bacci traveled over 500,000 air miles as my ‘jet pet’ experiencing life in a very unique way. His hometown was Aspen, Colorado where he co-hosted my local television show for many years. I wrote Bacci’s memoirs from his point of view and in his voice.
Most of all the book is an entertaining testament to the multi-faceted richness that pets can bring to human life.
