About the Book:

Author Thomax Green has produced a compelling new book so cosmic in its scope that it has the power to change readers’ lives. THE SHU:  THE GNOSTIC TAO TE CHING is a “modern-day Gnostic work which blends all faiths and sciences into a super belief,” Green says. “With this belief system, you can be a faithful individual without the restrictions and classifications that are imposed by religious groups. In short, it is the way to freedom and happiness.”

Thank you for this interview!  I’d like to know more about you as a person first.  What do you do when you’re not writing?

I enjoy going to the gym when I can. I also read a lot, paint, draw, and I would like to learn how to play the mandolin.

When did you start writing?

When I was a child I received a small blank book and pencil in my Christmas stocking and I sat down and wrote a story of a knight saving a princess from a dragon. That was when I was infected with the bug, but I didn’t seriously start writing until ten years ago after my coma.

As a published author, what would you say was the most pivotal point of your writing life?

Putting the final touches on The Shu The Gnostic Tao Te Ching. It is my coup de grace.

If you could go anywhere in the world to start writing your next book, where would that be and why?

I wish my family still owned our cabin in the woods. It would have made a perfect writers retreat.

If you had 4 hours of extra time today, what would you do?

I would dedicate more time to my artwork. Writing seems to dominate my time now.

Where would you like to set a story that you haven’t done yet?

I have a series I am writing that takes place in Astoria OR. I visited the town for research; it is a gem.

Back to your present book, The Shu The Gnostic Tao Te Ching, how did you publish it?

I self-published it but I am seeking representation in New York now since there is a strong interest in it being published overseas.

In writing your book, did you travel anywhere for research?

Only out of my body. There is a lot you can learn from spirits.

Why was writing The Shu The Gnostic Tao Te Ching so important to you?

This is one book that really has the power to change the world. Not only will you find enlightenment by reading it when you purchase it 50% of my royalties go to UNICEF to help children in need.

Where do you get your best ideas and why do you think that is?

From when I sleep. There is much more to our daily mini deaths than just rest.

Any final words?

If you pick up The Shu and you find it changes your life give it to someone else who needs it more and then purchase another copy. Because that is the way this book can do the most good for the world.
