Phil Earle

Phil Earle was born in the mighty city of Hull in 1974, and as a child held no desire to be either a writer or a reader. It was only when he started work at Ottakar's bookshop in Putney, at the age of twenty six, and was forced into the kids department, that he discovered a passion for children's literature.


Phil has also worked as a care worker with looked after children and as a Drama Therapist; he now divides his time between writing and his role as Sales and Marketing Director at David Fickling Books.


Phil frequently talks about literacy in libraries and schools across the UK and beyond, and lives with his family in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
