Write with Phil

Hello! My name is Phil, and I write novels, plays and the occasional bit of non-fiction.

I’ve also collected a collection of resources that I use when writing, whether that’s for inspiration or more practical means. Have a look at my list of the best books, blogs, podcasts and tools for writers.

You can use the buttons below to find out more about my work, or use the menu at the top of the page.

If you want to find out more, please sign up to my mailing list using the contact page or the pop-up that will probably appear at the bottom of the page any moment. If you do, I’ll send you over a virtual copy of my one act play, Head of State, as a little thank you.
