Diana Glyer, Ph.D., is intrigued by the creative process, particularly the way that creativity thrives within small groups and creative clusters. She has published extensively on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Joy Davidman, and the Inklings. Her latest book is The Company They Keep: C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien as Writers in Community (Kent State University Press, 2008).
