Philip Beicken was born in Galway, Ireland, grew up in England and has a German passport. Incredibly, he found someone special who would accept him as a husband 23 years ago and they have two great kids in their family home based in West Sussex. Philip also has two kittens named Molly and Marley, who like nothing more than chasing every leaf, butterfly and frog in the garden.
Even at an early age, Philip enjoyed creating fast paced, light-hearted stories filled with heroes, heroines and villains. His love of all sports, especially tennis and badminton, keeps him active for large spells during the week. When he’s not writing, he runs his own business as a 360 videographer, which has enabled him to film in the USA and Europe.
The Ghosteleers, a middle-grade ghostly adventure is his first book.
