D. GLENN FOSTER – BIOGRAPHY
D. Glenn Foster, the father of the Kinesic Interview Technique, is the recognized expert, practitioner, and teacher of this renowned interview and interrogation system. He has devoted his career to the lifelong study of deceptive behaviors of humans under stress.
Teaming up with Frederick. C. Link, they originated the Kinesic Interview Technique. The publication of the 1980 book by the same name established the early Kinesic principles.

Glenn has also collaborated with Mary Marshall in adapting his Kinesic techniques to the world of personal relationships, which resulted in the best-selling book How Can I Get Through To You? In recent years, Glenn has concentrated on applying his statement and interview analysis techniques to cold case homicides.
Glenn is especially skilled at:
- Identifying deceptive witness and suspect statements.
- Identifying the exact points where a witness or suspect is lying.
- Identifying a witness or suspect's motivation for lying or deception.
- Identifying interview strategies for deceptive witnesses or suspects.
Today, Glenn continues writing, teaching, and consulting with attorneys and investigators on criminal and civil investigations worldwide.
