Phil Phoenix was born in Bristol in 1942. He has a lifelong passion for science fiction, first inspired by the Eagle comic book and, later, H.G.Wells amongst many others.
Phil did not take up writing seriously until he was 52, when a particularly vivid nightmare made such an impression on him that he had to write it down. This dream eventually became his first novel, Jet!, which is his first title published through Heddon Publishing and the first episode of the JET! Trilogy.
Phil still lives in Bristol and his down-to-earth, dry South West sense of humour is very evident in his writing.
