Bio: I am an artist, illustrator and author. I trained at St. Martins School of Art and exhibited regularly in the UK and abroad throughout the 1980s. My illustration highpoint was designing the cover for the UK paperback edition of the novel, Billy Bathgate. I lived in Israel in 1970 and then again from 2009 until 2012. I currently divide my time between London, Oxford and southern Spain where I continue to work as an artist, as well as make Moscatel wine. My first book, King Saul – The True History of the First Messiah was published to critical acclaim in 2007. My first novel, The Sons of Kohath was published in 2015 – since re-released as ARK.

ACADEMIC REVIEWS ON KING SAUL
There are several features of this book that will lead Saul enthusiasts to want to add it to their library. Green has certainly made a fresh analysis of Saul in his book.
Ralph K. Hawkins, in RBL
Green extends the work of Baruch Halpern and Simcha Shalom Brooks to give us our most intelligent and best written revisionary history of the relationship between Saul and David to date … Green builds a powerful case for an Othello-and-Iago relationship … Green masterfully exposes the evolving political realities of the Near East.
Patrick Madigan, in Heythrop Journal, Vol 53:2
… a brave and unflinching look at an established tradition it provides plenty of food for thought.
D.W. Rooke, in Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, Vol 32
