Overview

Life is a sexually-transmitted, fatal disease. Yes, it's a serious matter, this life thing, and it's not to be taken flippantly. As my son, Cain, wrote in his maths book when he was seven years old: "Be serious or else you'll die."

Let's be honest about it -- we're all going to die, cease to be, expire, kark it, decease, curl up our toes, naff off, go walkies on cloud nine, be drinking at the Harp and Cloud, have one last fart, shuffle from this mortal coil, meet our maker or drop our toga. However we express it, we're all going to die and we can choose any age and a variety of ways to do it. I'm being really blunt here as it seems that many people are really not getting the message that no matter what we do with this life thing, we're going to die anyway. And when we die, the world will keep spinning, people will continue to pick their noses, fart, make love, make war, hold hands, bicker, smile, buy lotto tickets and whinge at the government. Sorry, but LIFE WILL GO ON WITHOUT YOU.

So, in the meantime, let's do this life thing with a bit of style, panache and humour. After all, what's the alternative?

Life and spirituality are supposed to be about being light and joyful but Philip saw that most spiritual magazines were earnest and lacking humour. Deciding to make a change, he nagged the editor of a local spiritual magazine - a phone call, visit or an email every month for a year - to include more articles with humour and controversy. She eventually caved in to his persistence and his first article prompted more letters to the editor than all previous articles and so he was asked to continue.

Philip has now written for magazines in many countries and he cares not that you think like him - his abiding desire is that you think ... his articles may prompt you to do that.

Meet the Author

I’ve had 14 books published and have finally narrowed down my genre – spiritual thrillers. I am a recovering accountant, banker, corporate trainer, lecturer who turned to writing. I somehow found myself involved in (or informed about) international intrigues, dishonesty and fraud, involving banks, governments and police forces. I thought it was time to turn them into stories so everyone can experience the “other side” of life. Having run personal development courses in several countries (and being a student of A Course in Miracles) I cannot help but bring in the spiritual element to these stories, giving characters (and readers) ways of dealing with stressful situations. Life is far too interesting to be fluffing about on the sidelines and I (and my characters) are determined to live it to the fullest, even if it means a little danger, stress and uncertainty at times! I have been a columnist, editor and publisher of magazines in NZ, Aust., Sth Africa and Czech Republic. I was commissioning editor for Business Books (an imprint of O-Books) and am a freelance writer and editor for clients around the world. Summary list of writing/publishing experiences • Publisher of books • Commissioning Editor for Business Books • Publisher of national magazine, • Website Editor/Writer • Columnist for magazines in four countries, • Writer of 14 published books, • Editor for national magazine, • Reporter for weekly newspaper, • Professional freelance writer, proof-reader and editor for clients in Australia, Czech Republic, Norway, Slovenia, Germany, Romania, Arabia, Britain, Canada and America.
