James Green - Author

About the Author

From Bible commentaries to the world’s first and only collection of beer poetry, James Green has been writing full-time since 1997. After leaving school when he was 16, Green became a miner for about a year. It scared the living daylights out of him and he vowed to never again do anything so dangerous or dirty. He spent the next 30 years with his wife Pat raising their three children and being ‘the most ordinary people in the world’. Green’s life took a turn for the extraordinary when he quit teaching, moved to Northumberland, and took up writing ‘to keep the wolf from the door’.
