Derek Green writes in a wide range of genres. His main interest is fiction—both the short story and the novel—but he has also worked professionally as a screenwriter, feature journalist, and business writer. In addition to his writing, Derek is a skilled public speaker who has delivered hundreds of corporate presentations and seminars in both English and Spanish.  


His first book, NEW WORLD ORDER, is a collection of stories linked by a fictional Halliburtonesque company and set in various locations around the world. In writing it, he drew on experiences traveling through twenty-two countries on six continents. After the book appeared, he cowrote the screenplay adaptation of a novel for Warner Bros. Studios and Carousel Productions as well as several television pilots. He is currently completing a novel about the rise of an armed midwestern militia and a second collection of stories.
