Glen Merzer

Author of Own Your Health


GLEN MERZER is a playwright, screenwriter, and author. He began his career as a stand-up comic in San Francisco before devoting himself to playwriting. He wrote for network television for many years before stumbling into a career writing books that advocate the plant-exclusive diet.

His first novel, Off the Reservation, chronicles the journey of a vegan congressman who runs for president.  Described by Kirkus Reviews as a “fast-paced, wryly comic and vastly satisfying political satire”, Off the Reservation also contains 20 bonus, deliciously satisfying, vegan, oil-free recipes by Joanna Samorow-Merzer.


Glen has co-authored many books on the topic of health, and as a published playwright, his prize-winning works have entertained audiences at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Off-Broadway. One of his latest plays, a vegan-themed play inspired by the life of Anthony Bourdain, remains unproduced, to his chagrin.
