About

Who is TJ Green?

Hi, so glad you’re visiting my website! This is a little bit about me.

My Writing

I’m the author of the series Tom’s Arthurian Legacy, fantasy books that continue the legend of King Arthur, but set in the Other. You can see the books here. I am also working on a few short stories which further expand the world of the Other, and Tom and Arthur’s friends. If you’re interested, I’ve written a few blogs on the main characters here.

A new project is a series of books about witches and magic, and I’m aiming to complete the first book over the next few months.

When not writing!

I was born in England, in the Black Country, but moved to New Zealand 10 years ago. England’s great, but I’m over the traffic! I now live near Wellington with my partner Jase and my cats Sacha and Leia. When I’m not busy writing I read lots, indulge in gardening and shopping, and I love yoga. Unfortunately writing is not a full time thing yet, so to pay the bills I work as a nurse in the disease control team in public health – fun times!

In a previous life I’ve been a singer in a band, and used to do some acting with a theatre company. On occasions me and a few friends make short films, which begs the question, where are the book trailers? I’m thinking on it …

Tom’s Inheritance is the first in the series Tom’s Arthurian Legacy. The sequel is called Twice Born, and the third book, Galatine’s Curse will be released in March 2018.

Why magic and mystery?

I’ve always loved the weird, the wonderful and the inexplicable. Favourite stories are those of magic and mystery, set on the edges of the known, particularly tales of folklore, faerie and legend – all the narratives that try to explain our reality.

The King Arthur stories are fascinating because they sit between reality and myth. They encompass real life concerns, but also cross boundaries with the world of faerie – or the Other as I call it. There are green knights, witches, wizards, and dragons, and that’s what I find particularly fascinating. Many of the main characters use magic, and although Arthur does not have magical powers, he has a sword with mysterious powers. They’re stories that have intrigued people for generations, and like many others I’m adding my own interpretation.
