J.M. Green is a writer based in the western suburbs of Melbourne, on the unceded land of the Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation. Her work has appeared in Overland and The Guardian. Her debut novel, GOOD MONEY, featuring Stella Hardy, was shortlisted for the 2014 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, the Ned Kelly Award and the Sisters in Crime’s Davitt Award. The trilogy concludes with TOO EASY (2017) and SHOOT THROUGH (2019). In 2020 she completed a Master of Screenwriting at VCA. She divides her time between writing in her backyard studio and lying in the foetal position wondering what the point is.
“… if you like your crime fiction to feel funny and real then Green has your measure.”
The Saturday Paper
“…J. M. Green knows just how to use black humour, irony and underplayed sarcasm to perfection.”
“…This is a powerhouse debut, full of excitement, jokes, brutality and scenic flights over Australia’s dangerous red centre, and the very bad use of very good money.”
