Regular readers of this blog know I’ve been “messing about” with fiction for several years now. But one thing or the other prevented me from launching.
I’m launching – softly – slowly – but coming out (as it were) of the shadows.
My kid brother’s name was David Frank Green so when I needed a fiction identity, I thought it was a good idea to borrow his. He was a writer, editor, tv broadcaster and would have likely beaten me to the fiction world had he lived. He died far too young at 30.
Hence the pseudonym of D. Frank Green for my fiction.
I think most of us have two sides.
The garden side of my writing is where I work with nature, fitting into the web of life and trying very hard to appreciate the world around me. It’s a living breathing world of beauty and raw power.
The fiction side is where I write about what man is doing with that world.
It’s darker. Less optimistic. It’s a world where beauty and power are defined differently.
And not for everyone.
Let me point you to the fiction writing Facebook page for D. Frank Green. It’s a repository for non-gardening things that capture my interest.
The website has received a major makeover. Given I did nothing with it for the last 10 months, it was time to take a serious look.
As I wrote a few weeks ago, there are three stages to the creative’s website platform. I went “all in” on fiction writing so I’ve moved the website to Rainmaker for a full tech solution. I’ll have the url for you in another week once I hit the “go button”.
But for now, take a peek at the Facebook page. If you want to see more, read my stories as they’re posted, like the page.
