Biography

I am Australian and living in Victoria. If you decide to read my books I hope you enjoy them. I understand my stories will not be to everybody's taste and across the various retailers I have received some very complimentary reviews and a couple of scathing ones too. In the latter instances it is evident the people have not finished the story they were reading. I don't think a review should be left if a book has not been read completely.
ALL PROCEEDS FROM MY STORIES ARE NOW BEING DONATED TO ANIMAL WELFARE AGENCIES.
Aside from writing, I also paint and feature on the Paintings I Love website under my own name.

  • PsychoHead Fiction Book One on March 25, 2011

    Very well written series of short stories. I particularly enjoyed Doll Face and Astral Nomads but all the stories were enjoyable, and odd in varying degrees. GL
  • PsychoHead Fiction Book Two And A Bit on April 15, 2011

    A series of funny little yarns, not quite knowing where each one was going they kept a smile on my face throughout. Well done T.D. Green. Another winner.
  • Ghost of a Chance on Nov. 13, 2011

    This was a really great read. It held my attention throughout. It was difficult to put down and when I did I couldn't wait to pick it up again and keep reading. For me that's the sign of a good, well crafted story. This really should be in print. It is much better than a lot of printed novels I have read. I wish I could claim this book amongst my stable of works. Very, very good. My only criticism is that it was not proof read well enough. There are lots of little mistakes of grammar, and typos. For all that though, these did not seriously detract from what was otherwise a great read. I'm still giving this five stars, because really it was worth six. Well done, highly recommended.
  • Pilf - The Imaginer! on Jan. 12, 2012

    Well written TD Green. Very engaging and entertaining story that I am sure youngsters will love.
