My name is Phil, and I write novels, plays, short stories and even the occasional bit of non-fiction

In 2021 I’ll be running a brand new flash fiction experiment called Tales from the Whale. If you like sci-fi I’d recommend you try it out.

The lucky members of my mailing list get a free flash fiction story each month. Sign up with the link or using the form on the right.

Every now and then I blog with advice for other writers, and I dabble on Medium.

When I’ve finished reading a book, I post a quick description and mini-review on my reading page.

You can find out more and get in touch on my about page.
