VJ Books Presents Author Phil Rickman!

Author Phil RickmanPhil Rickman is the author of the Merrily Watkins mysteries. the new John Dee series and several novels of the paranormal, including two for children under the name Thom Madley.) He's still trying to write the sometimes-transcendental thriller (an all-the-time transcendental thriller would be bloody unreadable, so it's a balancing act.)

Born in Lancashire, he's spent most of his adult life in Wales and the Border country, where he won a couple of awards for his work as a BBC radio and TV news reporter.

First novel, Candlenight (1991) was discovered by the novelist and fiction-editor Alice Thomas Ellis and was followed by four other stand-alone ghost stories before the Merrily Watkins series began with The Wine of Angels. Rickman also writes under the pseudonyms Will Kingdom and Thom Madley.

Phil lives near Hay-on-Wye with his wife, Carol _ they met as journalists on the same paper _ and a bunch of animals. He writes and presents the book programme PHIL THE SHELF on BBC Radio Wales.
