Writer is jealous we hear (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

greene

Here is my best explanation:

'writer' is the definition.

(graham greene)

'jealous we hear' is the subsidiary indication.

'jealous' becomes 'green'.

'we hear' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.

'green' sounds like 'greene'.

'is' is the link.

(Other definitions for greene that I've seen before include "Graham --, Eng. author", "The Quiet American author", "Graham -, English author (Brighton Rock)", "Graham --, British author", "Graham -, twentieth century English author", "See 13" and "Graham -, English novelist".)
