About

Gregory Erich Phillips headshot

Novelist, Musician, Tango Dancer!

My first novel, “Love of Finished Years” won the Chaucer Award in historical fiction, as well as the Grand Prize for best book of the year across all genres in the Chanticleer Reviews international writing competition. It is coming out in Jannuary 2018 through Sillan Pace Brown.

I have often been called a renaissance man, and I believe my diverse life experiences help to give a richness to the characters in my novels. I work by day as a mortgage banker, play the violin and sing in the cathedral choir, and moonlight as a tango performer (I have danced on stages in San Francisco, New York City and Seattle). Somewhere in the margins of time, I write books. There is always time to pursue your passion!

With my novels, I aim to shine light on universal truth through the hero’s journey. My characters are strong and relatable, regardless of one’s background or belief system. Aspirational stories, creatively set in compelling cities or amidst dramatic historical events.

I live in Seattle, Washington with Rachel: my wife, my tango partner and my muse.
