P J Bradbury
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.

Gerald the Great of Garokoland
The only way Gerald can marry the beautiful princess is to take over the bankrupted kingdom of her stupid father, the king.
He now has to deal with the corruption, starvation and senseless slavery of spirit that has beset this insane place. He manages to find order, beauty and love, with help from some strange characters. This is not a serious book but it has a serious message ... seriously!
An Olympic Challenge
Arthur is bored with work, marriage & life but dreams of sunshine, adventure & being 007.
Arthur, Mary and some unlikely friends are thrown into the fearful world of international espionage, the politics of greed and the Olympics. Inspired by A Course in Miracles, they move from hopelessness to hope.
Circles of Gold
A modern day fable about a time we've forgotten to remember ... about despair, hope and love reborn. About the challenges we've all been blessed with, the challenges we can either see as stumbling blocks or stepping stones ...
An insight into our past (and the the Men's Movement) gives us an idea as to where we're at now and why we're here. Men have served civilization well but not always how we wanted. My stories explain, not excuse, men so we understand and accept each other more and run this human race together. Philip has run his personal development and men's workshops in NZ, Australia and Sth Africa for many years
Dactionary - ... the dictionary with attitude
Have you ever wanted to have an argument with a book? This is your book. With unsubstantiated facts and ill-formed opinions, along with a multitude of correct, authenticated, irrelevant and/or fascinating words, you'll find yourself amazed, incensed, facinated, laughing, crying and wondering why the heck you hadn't delved into such a deliciously, decadent depth of diatribe before, just for fun!
Articles of Faith
Articles about the Now Age, on spirituality and about life. With humour and insight, magazine columnist, Philip Bradbury, questions our long-held beliefs about God, life and the whole nine yards of what we're here for and what to do about it now we are here. You'll laugh, sigh and come away with a different point of view ... of yourself, life, God and/or Philip Bradbury!
The Royal Bank of Stories
Short stories that would be true had the world been more sane (or insane). These stories tell of our past and future with a bit of humour and fantasy thrown in. They are guaranteed to touch your emotionally somehow - you'll laugh, cry (maybe), chuckle, sigh, yell 'Eureka!' and you may even realise just how amazing you are, which is the whole point of the stories. Oh, yes, you may even enjoy them!
The Meaning of Larf
125 luscious pages of amusement for anyone who likes a laugh and some thoughtfulness. Gathered from hundreds of unsolicited emails over eons of monitor-staring pleasure, these tid-bits of nonsense, sense and otherwise gritty, pithy and rather silly jottings of so many scribes, most called Anony Mouse, cannot go unheralded.
