Phillip Strang’s Bio
Phillip Strang was born in the late forties, the post-war baby boom in England; his childhood years, a comfortable middle-class upbringing in a small town, two hours’ drive west of London.
His childhood and the formative years were a time of innocence. Relatively few rules, and as a teenager, complete mobility, due to a bicycle – a three-speed Raleigh – and a more trusting community. It was the days before mobile phones, the internet, terrorism and wanton violence. An avid reader since childhood.
In his early twenties, the author, with a degree in electronics engineering, and an unabated wanderlust to see the world left the cold and damp climes of England for Sydney, Australia – the first semi-circulation of the globe, complete. Now, forty years later, he still resides in Australia, although many intervening years spent in a myriad of countries, some calm and safe – others, no more than war zones.
Phillip and I talked about writing thrillers, living internationally, the hard work of sitting down and writing, creating box sets of your work, success, marketing and selling as an indie author and advertising on Facebook, Twitter and Amazon (Phillip shared his wonderfully detailed methodology for getting reviews in How Self-Published Book Author and Marketing Maven Phillip Strang Gets Amazon Reviews. It’s worth a read).
