Phil Earle

UK flag (b.1974)

Phil was born in Hull in 1974, and he studied English and Drama at Hull University. He worked for a year as a carer in a childrens home, then after training as a drama therapist, he worked in a therapeutic community in London, which cared for multiply abused adolescents. Then, changing tack completely, he chose a marginally more sedate life as a childrens bookseller. It was here that he developed an obsession for kids literature, in particular, young adult fiction.

After three years at Ottakars, he became a sales rep, and then a key account manager for Transworld/Random House, and is now sales director at Simon and Schuster Childrens Books.

Phil lives in South East London with his wife and three young children.
