Philip Reyth is from Tucson, Arizona. Loves the desert and mountains, but not the million people. He now resides in a small town with his beautiful wife and two boys in the High Sierras in Nevada near Lake Tahoe. Oh, we can't forget their cat Shalom, he would never forgive us. The slower pace of life enables him to concentrate on his sole passion of writing. Taking it beyond just a hobby. He has published at least 15 poems and 13 short stories in Print & Web-zines. Both Pro & Non-pro publications. Some notable publications; The Pedestal Magazine's 'Political Anthology,' Simulacrum Magazine #7, Nth Degree Magazine #11. His goal is to publish his first Speculative Fiction novel of a trilogy. His ultimate goal is to make a film adaptation of his novels. To write the screenplay, direct and act in it. Philip would make a great villain. Here is his home page address that links all of his publications:
