Author of Blood Relationships - Book One of Resurrections
Philip A. Oldfield

Author of Blood Relationships - Book One of ResurrectionsI was born in Cambridge, England, in 1959. When I was eight years old, I spent a few years living in Connecticut, USA as my family had emigrated. I still feel America is my second home. However, following the untimely demise of my father's health and subsequent death, England, once more, was home. I have written short-stories and poetry from my early teenage years. I read Geography as a mature student at the University of Exeter, starting when my third child was 3 months old. I have been an active parent for thirty-two years and a single parent since 2007. I have four adult children and two grandchildren. My youngest son left home in 2012. I have had, and continue to have, an eclectic working life which has spanned the private, public and voluntary sectors within the United Kingdom. My experience stretches across the police service, marketing and, business, social and economic development. The novel Blood Relationships weaving modern history with the present to create a thriller which combines art and science is my first completed book. It started off as a concept several years ago. With the opportunity to write full-time combined with long hours of research and writing this year (2013) I was able to bring it to fruition. It is the first of a planned trilogy called Resurrections. I have five other books clambering over one another calling out to be finished, read and heard. Two are fantasies, two are historical fiction and the fifth is a romance. I live and write in Exeter, England and enjoy its growing cosmopolitan feel along with the blessings of living in close proximity - 30 minutes or less - to the sea, rural landscapes and the wildness of the moors. And finally, I have several favourite sayings garnered from others, which I call upon from time to time to spur me on. My favourite, I guess, which has helped me in many ways is, I think, a Chinese proverb: 'Behold the tortoise; he only makes progress, by sticking his neck out.' Always live in hope, Philip A. Oldfield
