About DC Green

dc-dancing-small.jpg Before DC Green became a children’s author, he worked for 20 years as a surf journalist, won awards for both his fiction and non-fiction writing, travelled the world and annoyed the superstars of surfing.

Now DC writes humorous fantasy books for 8-108 year olds and brilliant chimpanzees.

‘Erasmus James & the Galactic Zapp Machine’ stars a naughty boy genius named Erasmus, ninja horses, mutant chooks, adventure aplenty and the threat of galactic war.

In ‘Stinky Squad’, Oztrailer has become a nation of brain-munching zombies run by an evil Prime Monster. The only possible saviours? A group of teens who have mysteriously developed gross superpowers, like wall-melting acid vomit. Stinky Squad!The world’s most twisted picture book, Three Little Surfer Pigs is a modern rhyming (and very funny) version of the classic fairy tale.

And look out for the second Erasmus James book, coming soon: ‘Erasmus James, King of Kid’s Paradise.’

DC’s other writing credits include: some 2,000 plus articles published in over 60 magazines around the world; stories in a dozen anthologies; a commissioned movie script; one graphic novel for adults and an animated pilot for Foxtel.

DC Green lives on the South Coast of NSW with his daughter and guard cats. Still learning how to surf, he is available for funny and informative school visits and is happy to pretend he knows what he is talking about at writing festivals.

    Hi DC,

    I am the teacher librarian at Telopea Primary School in Sydney – you visited us in Book Week last term, and the kids were thoroughly impressed with the grossness of your stories!
    Happy Christmas!

    G’day DC,

    As world leader in the science of communicating with children who are passionate about surfing, it befalls you to grace our filthy and zit covered debate about surf tourism (yes the oxymoron again) and the meaning of life…(and I mean MEAN)

    Wordsmithing aimed at academics and industry czars just falls on ears plugged with throw-away lines and brains gel-coated and shaped by “the Machine” till they vibrate in a straight line and loose traction in any turn.

    We need someone who can communicate with 7 year olds…. 11 years max. You are the man for the job. Oh forgot to mention the job. It entails just Being There…. (my favorite movie) http://surfindustry.collectivex.com… and helping bring some fun to what has become a juggernaut of dunny door scribble sprinkled with diamonds of wit and wisdom. Email me at mentawaifusion@me.com
