Philip was born in Seaforth, Liverpool in 1966 and has since lived in Dunedin, New Zealand, then Bootle Liverpool and Skelmersdale, Lancashire. Since childhood his interest in writing was always there and short stories and poetry where always dabbled with. The first novel 'Three Wishes' was written as a '1st' in a future series and the follow up is underway. After this he decided to write a Poetry collection and so did and called it 'View From My Mind' and much more Poetry is in the pipeline too. Along with this came an idea that was born from his Blog Page where a taxi tale was posted periodically. He and his friend and now co-author Glenn Pye (who created and manages his blog and web pages) decided to take the blogs taxi tales and create a book. So together they did and 'Taxi Tales' was completed. As both have been taxi drivers for many many years an awful lot more 'tales' are to be told so this book is also now an 'in the pipeline' series.
