Originally coming from an entertainment background, having been an actor, musician, comedian, magician, director and producer, he understands both the light and shade of the human condition.
Growing up the son of an infamous father also gave him insights, which he has channelled into the Harry Royle Books. Researching and writing these books has given Philip not only more of an insight into his own father’s life and times but has also brought a deeper understanding of his own father-son relationship.
