Meet the Author

In 1995, Canadian writer Robert Greene embarked on a series of short stories called "Gay Folklore Stories of the World." The stories were a collection of gay love tales created to teach gay men about bravery, chivalry, and selfless romantic acts. Greene wanted to show that romanticism could bring deeper meaning to gay love.

He is famous for his quote, "Romantics are to gays what Christians were to Roman's back in the day--something to feed to the lions." The quote conveys the frustration some men feel in the gay community in their efforts to bring depth and respect to their interpersonal gay relationships.

In 2000, the now-defunct SBC Magazine spring edition published Greene's short story entitled, "The Soiled Loin Cloth." The magazine's editor ,Stanley Bennett Clay, accompanied the African-themed piece with a photograph of two Nubian men wrestling in the water. The piece garnered much attention for the magazine and Greene was requested to submit another short. He then went on to submit "The Wrong Voice Far Away," which was published in the winter 2001 edition of SBC Magazine.

Greene got more personal in his writing when, in 2003, he was asked about his family's heritage in Canada. The Halifax Herald Newspaper acquired a piece written by Greene called "Africaville: A Young Girls Journey." It detailed his mother's memory as a child visiting long lost relatives. Greene believed that this branch of relatives came to Canada as runaway slaves from the USA.

Greene garnered notoriety when the editor of "Letters From Camp Rehoboth" honoured Greene's efforts in bringing romantic love to gay men by publishing "The Journey and the Jewels" for their February 10, 2006 edition in time for Valentine's Day. That year "The Journey and the Jewels" received praise both in Canada and the US. The Watermark, a weekly LGBT publication in Florida, gave kudos in their story which honoured the writer.

In 2013, Greene is continuing his young adult gay fiction love novels with Would You Mind? This comes after the successful launch of "This High School Has Closets"
