At the age of 15, in 1965 he started his professional career with the Actors and Writers Workshop, and ten years later, he became a poet. After getting a master’s degree in performance art, he became a writer in residence for the Georgia Council for the Arts. In addition, he was a composer-in-residence for the Academy Theatre, where he wrote music for several productions during the 1980s. In the 1990s he was the artistic director of Theatrical Outfit, a professional equity theatre.

Before writing fiction novels, Phillip also wrote plays for the stage. He also directed several plays (including Beowulf) and was the director of two university theater programs. Over the years he has worked as director of several university theater programs. In 2002 he received the Edgar Award Best Mystery Play for Easy. Some of his books were nominated for various awards as well (Shamus finalist).

He has written complex characters while giving us places full of local color.

Flap Tucker is a detective with a special ability: he is using his intuition to find lost things … or people. And he relies on meditation rather than on a gun to do so.

Fever Devilin, the main character, is a daredevil and former folklorist who has returned home to the Georgian Appalachians, leaving behind the world of academia. But when he returns, home is not quite the way he left it behind. The series is set in Set in Blue Mountain, Appalachian mountains of Georgia, and it includes seven novels with a blend of legend and mystery. Some of Fever’s adventures lead to quite severe near-death experiences, and as each book progresses, we see more of his past. We also get a look into his strange and mysterious family connections.

Foggy Moskowitz is a Jewish former car thief and current amateur PI working in Florida in the Child Protective Services in the early 1970s.

Christopher Marlowe, the famous English playwright, poet, and alleged spy in the late 1500s features in his latest series, which currently includes two books in which Marlowe portrayed as witty, womanizer, and investigator uncovering conspiracies.
