Is a horror/spirituality writer recently turned entertainment blogger. Author of six mind/body/spirit books and one patchwork dark fiction novel and currently blogging for Unreality Shout online entertainment magazine.


Background Information

Sue Phillips has been writing for a while. Currently a music blogger for Unreality Shout magazine after a fairly colourful time being a part of the grass roots campaign that made Rage Against the Machine the UK Christmas Number 1 as a backlash against the domination of  X Factor winners' singles and then going on to support a contestant in the following year's X Factor after he inconsiderately left Seven Summers, a band she had just become a fan of. He won. His name is Matt Cardle and he is planning to try and find success in the US in 2013.

Sue is the author of books and articles on mind/body/spirit themes, specialising in healing and North European traditions, including runes. Her book, Spirit of the Runes, published by Capall Bann, is now available and her newest work, Green Living, Sacred Life (co authored by Tye Jamie Coxston), was published in 2011. Her work has been seen in large circulation magazines such as Prediction and It's Fate, as well as in books from Capall Bann Publishing and Spiralthreads Books and she has written reviews for numerous magazines, plus two websites: Spiralthreads and Whispers of Wickedness, sadly both now defunct, although the latter did win a major national award for its reviews before the owner decided to turn her attention to other things. Sue currently has an entertainment blog on Unreality Shout under the pen name Amazinsuphilips, which is also her Twitter tag.

Her dark fantasy novel, The Waldorf Street Paradox, published by Rainfall Books contains ten diverse stories that come together like a jigsaw between the prologue and epilogue to make a larger tale, subtly inspired by magic, the occult and a satirical sense of humour. Two of the stories, Images of Angels and The Dark Mirror have already won awards and Sue Phillips is the reigning International Supreme Terror Scribe

In the past few years Susan M Phillips had a message board at Whispers of Wickedness website entitled Sue Phillips' Posh Parlour, a darkly dangerous place inspired by the work of Mr Sweeny Todd. Sadly the website closed in May 2009.  The contents of the message board are currently being adapted for publication. In the meantime, it is possible to visit Posh Parlour on Facebook.

If you enjoy poetry, take a look at These Shoes, which is one in a series about childrens footwear and An Afternoon With Katherine. For a little summer in the dark winter months, take a look at Warm Memories on a Cold Day. Rather more serious works are Scene in a Chinese Orphanage* and Who Suffers.  

Sue is a big fan of The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry, the reading of which has honed her poetic skills. Poems resulting from reading this wonderful little manual are marked TOLT and a number of other authors are joining her on her poetic adventure. A few poems have been published recently in The Source, Coventry University's inhouse  newspaper, including My Room and Maisie. She has also written flash fiction for the same publication.

Her major influences have been people like Charles Dickens, Nigel Pennick, Graham Joyce, Anne McCaffrey and, lately, Stephen Fry - a new favourite. Someone who critiqued Images of Angels during the Supreme Terrorscribes competition correctly noticed that she is also heavily influenced by Ealing Studio comedy films.

*Inspired by a television documentary aired a few years ago. It has been stated that such scenes no longer occur.

Birth Place
Coventry,  England, UK
Accomplishments

The only person ever to have won the Terrortales Supreme Terrorscribe award twice. Both awards were for black comedy fantasy stories, one of which was described as "the perfect short story".

Additional Information

Sue Phillips taught aspects of the Runes at the Warrior Camp held in the Summer of 2007 in Ludlow, England. The camp was a great success. The Summer of 2008 heralded more teaching at various venues around the UK and then she hopped off to take a university course which she graduated in 2012.
