Hello my name is Phil Tolhurst. George and the Dragon is my début novel and set to be released in Spring 2014. I live in Medway in the County of Kent in England with my wife, Margaret, and two children, Chloe and James. We’ve been married for 13 years and I’ve spent probably six or seven of those years working on George and the Dragon. For the most part the novel was written while sat on the floor of the train on my hour long commute each day. Other than writing I have a great love of all things fantasy and Science Fiction. I’m also a big fan of US cop drama shows like the Mentalist, Elementary, CSI, NCSI and not forgetting Grimm which nicely melds two of my loves together. I’m also at the moment watching Warehouse 13 from the beginning on Netflix. I have a great love of gadgets and children’s toys like Lego. My ultimate birthday present would be a set of Lego Mindstorms. Maybe if enough people buy my books I’ll treat myself. You can find out about my other books by checking my website here: www.philiptolhurst.co.uk. I also maintain a blog and you can find me on Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads and Pinterest.
