Philip Wilson is the author of two books – The Librarian and Songs for Lucy. Both books are available online through Amazon, Chapters and Barnes and Noble in paperback, hardcover and e-book formats.

The Librarian received a 5-star rating by IndieReader and was featured in the Huffington Post as one of the best reviewed books of 2017.

A former financial executive, the author began writing after retiring from his career. He spent his summers in Toronto sailing on the Great Lakes, and his winters in Florida.


A Note from the Author on Publishing:

“Not sure what prompted me to write. Every once in a while, I read a book that I really connect with – so much so it’s hard to put down, even after I’ve turned the last page. That was the kind of book I wanted to write.

Sometimes I think I should have tried writing earlier in my career. On the other hand, retirement is a great time to do it. I can write what I want, when I want, and I don’t really need to sell a single copy – well, maybe one, to myself, since it’s satisfying to see my book on my bookshelf. That said, sales are going well – so my thanks to my readers.

If I ever write a non-fiction book, it will be on investment management. I find it exasperating, and sad, how much bad advice people get from financial planners and wealth managers. Anyways that’s for another time.

I’d like to use this space to put in a plug for Tellwell, my self-publisher. They’ve been great to work with – responsive, knowledgeable and just plain fun to work with.

If you’ve got this far, you’ve either read one of my books or you’re thinking about trying it. If the former, I hope you enjoyed it; if the latter, I hope you’ll give it a try.”
