Phil was born in Margate, Kent just after the war. His father was in the army so he was moved frequently from one country to the next as a child – Middle East, Far East, Germany, Malta and Cyprus. He miraculously came away from school with six ‘O’ levels including English. He went straight into the RAF for many years and then into civilian street as a salesman for a short spell before joining an engineering company, until retirement. The author developed the reading bug when in some far-flung posting. Apart from ‘Biggles’, Phil’s first real book was Scaramouche by Rafael Sabatini. Since then he enjoys a good read with unusual aspects to it. The author has always enjoyed an active life, but these days it’s more sedate activities like reading, music, golf – and hopefully, writing, which Phil now actually finds quite enjoyable.
