Author: Philip Brown



Philip Brown, YA contemporary fantasy author of Light Runner, is motivated by the power of words to change lives. He teaches high school and is inspired by his students, many of whom struggle to overcome difficult social and personal issues. He believes the classroom is a place filled with brilliant and amazing stories.

Before he began writing fiction, Philip wrote a couple of astrology books. Cosmic Trends was published by Llewellyn Worldwide in 2006 and was a finalist for the Coalition of Visionary Resources Award. His widely read AstroFutureTrends blog was turned into the book, On the Cusp: Astrological Reflections from the Threshold.

Philip grew up with three strong sisters and a lineage of strong women. He learned to appreciate their fortitude and determination. In writing Light Runner, he wanted to convey his own heritage of their powerful resilience through the character of Dara.

Light Runner tells what happens when a powerful healing armband falls into the hands of sixteen year-old Dara, thrusting her into a perilous search for her missing father, clues to her mother’s recent murder–and the shocking truth about herself.

Philip studied to become a Shakespearean actor in London, lived on a Kona coffee farm on the Big Island of Hawaii, and drove a taxicab on the streets of L.A.

He likes to discover new books and watch British cop shows. With his wife, he enjoys frequent rock music concerts-although he’s up for any kind of live music. Philip received his Master of Arts degree in English from California State University Los Angeles and lives in Southern California.
