Philip is a 56 year old university lecturer in Human Resource Management and occasional outplacement counsellor. He doesn't tend to tell too many people about this as he is acutely aware of their eyes glazing over as he speaks. He lives on the edge of the Peak District, or, as it sometimes seems, just lives on the edge. He was born and brought up, like so many things, in Burton upon Trent and much of his writing over the past few years, for the Derby Telegraph, Burton Mail's "times gone by" magazine and Mature Times has featured his recollections of growing up (allegedly) in the 1950s and 1960s. Philip has also broadcast a number of articles in Radio Derby's "Did I Ever Tell You" series of stories. He has occasionally been accused of humour. "Steady Past Your Granny's" is Philip's first, self-published, collection of stories.
