Phil Price was born in Sutton Coldfield in 1974. He lived in various places in the UK until his family settled in Rednal, a suburb on the outskirts of Birmingham in 1979. Growing up with an older brother and sister, he always flirted with reading, his home always littered with books. Then in 1997, Phil embarked on a travel expedition that took him from Greece to Thailand, via East and Southern Africa. Sitting in dusty bus stations in Kenya, Tanzania and Malawi with Wilbur Smith and James Herbert accompanying him, his imagination was sparked into life. Since those far-off days, he has never been without a book to read.
Aside from his writing, Phil lives on the edge of a small town in Worcestershire, UK. A wife and two sons keep Phil happily occupied as he steers his way through life, playing the husband, dad and world creator in equal measure.
He was fighting for his country in a far-off land, hoping to make his home a safer place for his family. However, the danger was not where he thought it would be. He had no clue that it would be stalking the streets of Birmingham, looking for easy pickings. It never entered his head that two young boys could tear his world apart, taking what he loved most. Returning from conflict, John is plunged into his own dark war, trying to keep his family from falling apart. Twelve years later, his life has become bearable, the monotony keeping him on track. But just as things start to look up, shadowy figures from his past threaten to bring it all crashing down once more. Taking the one thing worth fighting for.
