Welcome to my website. Thanks so much for dropping by.
My newest baby and debut novel, GOLD! was first released in December 2010 through Amazon. As of June 2021 it’s now available ‘wide’. That is to say, it’s no longer exclusive to Amazon but can be purchased from most online retailers via this link:

For those visiting this site from within Australia who’d like to grab a paperback copy then I’m afraid you’ll have to buy through Amazon. The paperback version available from the books2read link above doesn’t ship to OZ. (It’s cheaper from Amazon anyway)
I’m proud to say GOLD! was listed as a finalist in the 2020 Page Turner Awards. https://pageturnerawards.com/writing-award-finalists/thomas-greenbank.
Also, for Aussie visitors, I’m offering you the chance to snatch a signed copy of GOLD! for yourself or a friend. Head over to Join The Tribe and submit your details now. My apologies to other visitors, the logistics of ordering from the US and then repackaging and forwarding were just too much. I’ll revisit this situation in the future. Stay tuned.
GOLD! was written over a three-year time-frame. The story itself encompasses 30 years in the lives of the characters. It’s a Family Saga based in and around the Goldfields region of Western Australia. This work is the first in a proposed three-book series. The as-yet-unnamed Book two is scheduled for release towards the end of 2021. All books in the series will be written as stand-alone stories with overlapping plots and some characters in common. No cliff-hangers, I promise.
Just a heads-up, for sensitive souls: GOLD! contains some coarse language, a couple of sex scenes, and drug use. Nothing over the top, but there you are.
Here is a brief synopsis—hopefully without too many spoilers.
Malcolm Kincaid is a self-made man. He is also a ruthless businessman and opportunist. He knows what it takes to build and maintain a business empire, but how far will he be prepared to go to achieve his goals — and what will he sacrifice along the way?
Rachel, Malcolm’s one-time fiancé; his business partner, and the mother of his child, finds herself forced to work with the man she has grown to despise.
Unaware of his true parentage, their son, Lachlan—after first studying for a law degree—advances through the ranks as their company grows into a mammoth corporation, while Rachel does her best to mitigate Malcolm’s increasing influence on him. This task becomes more difficult when Malcolm appoints Lachlan as manager of a new mine.
Lachlan soon has his own set of challenges: A fractious and sometimes domineering wife with a drug dependency, a child of his own, and a conscience that often leads him into direct conflict with his Machiavellian ‘uncle’.
Over the years, Malcolm Kincaid uses, abuses, and dominates associates and family alike, crushing all opposition in his pursuit of wealth and power.
When he allows the pollution of an Aboriginal settlement’s water supply, however, he faces justice of a kind he could never imagine.
GOLD! is a tale of greed, betrayal, family conflict, rape, and murder. It is also, however, a story of love and loyalty — and of how one man’s pride and prejudice can lead to terrible retribution.
