Mr. Dixon has this to say about his family's reaction to his authorship:

My family members all view my writing with a certain bemusement ("Daddy wrote a book -- he's weird"). They are willing to put up with it as long as I keep taking out the garbage.

However, creativity in the Dixon family doesn't stop with Glenn. His daughter Heather wrote a Wolfe story of her own when she was sixteen. She called it The End of Nero Wolfe, and here it is:
