About Donald Phillips

In the late sixties I was a member of a rock band and we were moderately successful. At twenty three I tired of being out every night for five years, married my long time girlfriend Rosemary and and left rock and roll behind, the money I had made furnishing our first house.

I then worked in engineering for many years, firstly in the tool room and eventually as Personnel and Training Manager. Next for some six years I ran the South Avon County Youth Opportunities Scheme for difficult trainees (they were referred by Social Service, Probation or the Police usually), based in Weston-super-Mare, England. We managed to get eighty five percent into permanent work. I spent my last two years in England running a 300 place training scheme for unemployed adults in Bristol.

During our life we had visited twenty seven countries at various times and our families are spread from Trondheim in Norway throughout Europe and on to Adelaide in Australia. Twenty six years ago we ourselves moved to rural Spain and found our own niche. We both speak Spanish now and are quite happy here.

Since then I have switched to Cabinet making and had over 190 articles published worldwide in the English language woodworking magazines and I produce one off pieces of furniture to order to make my pocket money. Not being a great television fan I spend my evenings writing articles and novels or reading my Kindle. I am a happy and content person.

Review by: Richard Baker on June 10, 2012 :
Four good stories although have to live or have lived in Spain to really appreciate some of the humour. If you have been there it is so much more relevant and funny. He has also written a couple of good novels you could try.

If you have read any of Donald Phillips wonderful thrillers you would not believe he could also be so funny. I enjoyed this book and look forward to his next.
