Introducing Author Mark Phillips

MarkIntroducing Mark H. Phillips

Mark H. Phillips has been a member of The Final Twist since 2008 and his stories have been selected for inclusion in the annual anthology ever since. He writes mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and even the occasional bit of erotica when asked.

As an active participant in the group, he has delivered presentations on such diverse topics as how to write action scenes, using personality profiles to build characters, and postmodernist writing techniques – which will be shared here in a future blog. He has also mentored a few new members and is a regular contributor to our critique group.

In addition to short stories, Mark has published a science fiction novel, The Resqueth Revolution, and with his wife, Charlotte Phillips, writes a mystery series with spunky PI Eva Baum.
