Mr Green Jeans
released on Earth Day
INDIEFAB Finalist — Winners to be announced in June!
Chris McGee’s debut eco-novel, Mr. Green Jeans, takes you on a climate change, charged adventure. A middle-aged married couple throws caution to the wind to help the planet. Traveling from the Midwest to Southwest in a converted VW van, they clandestinely exhibit their earth messages. Their actions soon become viral, and a following erupts. But there are those who want to shut them down, and with that, Jack and Lake Creek’s lives change forever.
Meet the Characters
Jack: “Lake and I are going to paste that message around the country in as many places as we can. Ten years ago, we couldn’t have hoped to have the impact we can today, with the Internet and social media…”
Lake: “We just can’t sit still, and we’re grateful, Lillian, for our station in life to have the means to do this.”
Jack’s mom, Lillian: “I wish you could have waited until I was dead.”

Whether you are among those taking a more involved approach to helping the environment, or you are contemplating a plan of action, or you simply remember the activism of your youth, you will appreciate the message and the characters of Mr Green Jeans. And you’ll have a fine time reading this thrilling and enthralling example of the cli-fi genre.”
“Exceptionally well written from beginning to end, Mr Green Jeans is all the more impressive when considering that it is author Chris McGee’s debut venture as an eco-novelist. Mr Green Jeans is very highly recommended, especially to the attention of environmental activists, and will make an enduringly popular addition to community library General Fiction collections.”
