In December 2018 Phil self published his first novel, Gold In The South. Searching for a new direction in life, Martin Clarke returns home, only to find himself embroiled in a series of events which will see him become obsessed with solving a four hundred year old mystery. The solving of the mystery will take Martin deep into civil war torn Spain, putting his own life in danger and threatening to destroy a town on the banks of the Guadalquavir river.
Phil says of the book, “Like
many people, I’d always wanted to write a book, but events and the daily grind
had always conspired against me. Then, somewhat unexpectedly, I had a couple of
months in which the pressures of having to earn a living were taken away from
me, thus giving me a window of opportunity to get some lines down on paper.
Gold in the South is the result of that.
The book is
inspired by the things which interest me and make me enjoy a book. So, it’s a
book with a sprinkling of history and knowledge that I hope leaves people
thinking that they’ve learned about something they might not have known
previously. But above all I’ve tried to create a book whose plot keeps a reader
turning the pages. I’ll leave it to readers to judge if I’ve achieved that.”
