The Greenygrey proclaims itself Britain's most famous werewolf. It has been a prolific rise in fame for the greenygrey one, and the GG brand is now known all over the werewolf world. Like a cross between Loki and Scooby Doo on the dog side, and Kerouac and Joanna Lumley on the human, the vegetarian werewolf helps the reader escape the restrictions of the body on an epic virtual travel across North America. As well as being an entertaining read as GG meets its heroes and lots of new characters across the continent, the book also has an educative angle, as the shape-shifting and chameleonising but mentally a bit muddled superhero creates an acronym map of North America that should help you remember your Newfoundland from your Nunavut and your Idaho from your Iowa.
About the Author
Dr. Marc Latham is 44 and lives in Leeds. Marc grew up in a one-parent family in a small town and was the only child without a (known) father in his primary school class. Despite being a promising student Marc dropped out of school at about twelve years of age, as television and daydreaming took over his life. Ordinary work didn't interest Marc, and after he didn't get taken on as a footballer he saved up some money and spent his twenties travelling the world with Kerouac as his inspiration. With his big trips under his belt Marc spent his thirties in university and saw it out to the end of the line, although he jumped off the 'product creation' conveyor belt a long time before finishing. Television documentaries alerted Marc to conditions such as ADHD and bipolarity, and along with his experiences amongst 'normal' people these confirmed Marc's suspicions that he is a bit mad. This realisation, along with running and a healthier life have recently improved the author's moods, but he hopes to continue being a bit different while becoming a full-time writer.
