H.D. Greaves lives in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, where he was born and raised. Although he has travelled extensively, his island home has always held a special place in his heart. Now in his seventies, he continues to write new novels and short stories.
MANDRAGORA - A Ribald and Irreverent Tale from the Italian Renaissance, has, since its publication as an ebook on Smashwords, has gained thus far five excellent reviews (on Amazon/Kindle), as well as a fine critique on The Podler Review of Books. An outrageous satirical comedy, it continues to delight readers with its wit, sexual situations, and sleazy characters.
OF BLISS AND GRANTED WISHES - A True Story Told as a Novel, is about aging and an ageless love, and yes, it's all true.
THE NARRATIVE VOICE - Nine Intriguing Stories and a Novella: The Witch of Tabaquite, is proof that with perseverance (and not a little luck), it is never too late to create and to succeed.
His short story, CLEOPATRUS EXCAPTIVUS, was included in the Vernal 2012 edition of Camera Obscura, a prestigious journal of short fiction, and is available in THE NARRATIVE VOICE collection of stories.
Also available on Smashwords are some of his plays:
ATASCADERO! and INCIDENT IN A DUCKYARD are unusual adaptations of stories by Hans Christian Andersen.
Other plays are GNATWING! - A Farce for Clowns, THE FIREBIRD, DISAGREEMENT IN EDEN, and the ever popular RUMPLESTILZKIN.
DRAMATIS PERSONAE - Poems of Comedy and Tragedy, a book with a wide variety of poems, is also available on Smashwords.
Soon to be introduced into the Smashwords library: The Voodoo Lily - A Novel of Forgiveness
H.D. is currently working on another novel: CLIZIA – A Tale of Scandalous Surprises, based on an Italian Renaissance comedy by Niccolò Machiavelli.
