What’s Good?

I have TWO new books in 2017 — TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS, the third novel in my Rip and Red middle grade series, and MARTINA & CHRISSIE, my non-fiction picture book about tennis legends Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert.

Hey!

Welcome to my website!

Last year, I overhauled and redesigned my site. Well, not me, but the good people at Skytemple gave my site a tight, fresh look. I hope you’ll dip inside and check it out.

Why the changes? Well, a few reasons. First, it had been several years since I last shook things up, and with a whole bunch of books coming out in 2016, 2017, and 2018, I felt a new look was in order. Second, I wanted the site to be easier to navigate. You’ll find it’s now much simpler to find out information about all my books, book trailers, school visits, and my YouTube series, “Out of My Mind” and “Phil’s Fast Five.”

Out Of My Mind

Speaking of “Out of My Mind”…

Here’s an episode called, “Book Talking A Whole New Ballgame.” It’s where I talk about the first book in my Rip and Red middle grade series.

What’s THE SOCCER FENCE?

It’s my picture book that hit shelves in 2014.

It’s a story of friendship, hope and apartheid in South Africa. Check out this super cool book trailer made by a group of fifth graders from Caldwell Heights Elementary School in Round Rock, Texas:

Finally, I’ve started a Blog page. It’s called, appropriately enough, “Out of Phil’s Mind.” That means, I going to start blogging again… I hope. The blog replaces my News Page and will include posts about my books, school visits, books I’ve read, education issues, and you guessed it, whatever else is on my mind.

Come on in, take a look around, and welcome to my world.

Peace!

Come On In!

Oh, And Just For Fun…

Finally, I now have a Blog Page. It’s called, appropriately enough, “Out of Phil’s Mind.” That means, I going to be blogging… I hope. The blog replaces my News Page and will include posts about my books, school visits, books I’ve read, education issues, and you guessed it, whatever else is on my mind.
