Gavin Green


I'm a normal guy with a regular job. I come home to an average house in the Midwest of the U.S., and have one of the best dogs in the world. I hurt one of my hands a little while back, so I put away my art supplies and started typing. Big fingers and a sensitive keyboard don't play together well, but I've gotten quick with backspace and delete. The rest of the time it's hunt 'n peck, hunt 'n peck. As for what I write, I usually just get a simple concept in my head, and then spend over half my spare time doing research for details. I imagine I'm not the only one who does that; otherwise, I'm a lot dumber than I thought.

Smashwords book reviews by Gavin Green

  • The Seven Princess and The Gates of Hell on Aug. 20, 2013

    Um, it really needs another proof read for grammar and punctuation, as well as removing random bold sentences. Some description and detail would be a nice touch.
  • Gale's Gift on Oct. 05, 2015

    I thoroughly enjoyed this. It was well-paced and kept my interest. The characters were given a simple framework, letting my imagination fill in the details. They also stayed true to their personalities while still allowing growth during their short adventure. What I liked best was the realistic setting and slightly faulted (i.e. normal) people in it.
  • Mail Order Bride Margaret (Montana Destiny Brides, Book 1) on April 28, 2016

    I enjoyed this quite a bit. Romance isn't the genre I'd usually choose to read, but the setting and characters caught my attention. A good and entertaining read; I'd recommend this.
  • A Collective Hive Brief on July 05, 2016
    (no rating)
    You really need a better translation program.
  • Darkling's Cove - A Story of Betrayal on Aug. 26, 2017

    Excellent story! Well-paced, and with enough depth to draw the reader in.
