About David Greene

David Greene's creative life has evolved from film to photography to writing. While a student at the University of Michigan he wrote and directed a feature length film, Pamela and Ian, in which the characters grapple with the fact that they are shadows of light and that the film must end.

After college David created a collection of black and white photographic portraits of men and women who artfully played with gender roles. This collection of photographs, called Shameless, was exhibited in galleries in Berkeley, San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and Zurich.

David also created a series of photographs for the book Men Loving Men. Two of these photographs are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

David is the spouse of painter James Stephens. They live in Chicago.

Review by: Raymond Moore on Nov. 20, 2010 :
"Unmentionables" is a wonderfully written romantic story, that I feel is also pretty dead on historically. The relationship between the enslaven couple and the free couple is completely believeable. The relationship between each set of lovers is also believeable, but something not too many of us would even think about, let alone put into words. If you like historical romance, this is a great read. The pages (and there are quite a few), just seem to "zip" by because it is so easy to read.
