with guest fantasy fiction writer Philip S. Davies.
Friday Night Extra
Patrick Sherring

Philip WS Davies, author of Destiny’s Rebel, Destiny’s Revenge and Destiny’s Ruin joined me tonight. Having been a Vicar, Philip was concerned that his churches had little engagement with young people. Inspired by the story telling of Jesus, he decided to write stories that explored themes beyond those normally within this genre. This led eventually to the the Katelin trilogy, which follow through the life and decision made by the main character, born a princess but wishing to make her own life decisions. Philip only began writing in 2009. Loving the experience he made a brave decision to become a full-time writer in 2012. He told us that he did not regret the decision. His books are available on Amazon. For more information and signed copies, contact him directly via and also find him on Facebook an Twitter.
