Where I Live
United Kingdom
Philippa, born in South Africa and fatherless by two, experienced the wildest of rural Africa in the care of her grandfather, on safari for weeks inspecting African schools. Otherwise she was imprisoned in boarding schools, for a 'British' education. She has lived on deserted islands in the Indian Ocean; at the Max Planck Institute in Bavaria with an unrepentant Nazi landlady; lectured to Bristol University students; designed and built her home, an arts centre and concert hall; raised four daughters.

She lives in Somerset in her converted barns with an old collie and a long-suffering husband.

Her two (self published) works have waited for the distillation of extensive reading and mastery of poetic narrative to capture not merely the Odyssey of Mankind, led by inspired mavericks, but the desire to convey the inspiration through poetic language addressing not only the left (conceptual) but the right (spiritual, metaphoric) brain. They are 'Involution-An Odyssey Reconciling Science to God which was awarded 'runner-up Book of the Year by the Scientific and Medical Network and 'A Shadow in Yucatan' both revealing the answer to a summoning 'call' for deeper integration. Released from the yoke of this magnum opus she is now concentrating on short stories. She has been finalist in Narrative competitions twice this year (2014) and one (Blerrie Fockin Beautiful) was selected as one of Narrative's five top stories of the year.

She is now embarking on a memoir to celebrate the differences between Old and New World ways of being; the gulf she mastered in perpetual straddle.
