About Phil Thomas
I wrote stories in school, mostly to entertain friends. My professional writing career began in the 1990s when I trained and qualified as a journalist. I jumped ship to PR in 2003 and since then I have worked for agencies and run my own PR and copywriting business. I published my first short story, The Dancing Man, in Making Changes, an anthology by Bridge House Publishing in 2009. My second, 15 Minutes, was included in their second anthology, 12 Days, also in 2009. In 2010 Bridge House included An Ugly Penguin in The Shadow of the Red Queen, while in the same year Wyvern Publishing printed The Shoebox in Mertales.
