Philip Berry

Biography

Born in 1971, I grew up in Sussex, learned my medicine in Bristol, did the hard time in London and now work as a consultant in Surrey. I have published many articles related to medical ethics and the science of medicine, but fiction remains at the core of my ambition. During holidays and brief downtimes the ideas arrive, but the hard bit comes with getting the words down in the right order.

I am currently working on a two, maybe three volume thriller exploring euthanasia and assisted dying. It will be dark, but there will be enough light to read by.
