Philip Brown, contemporary teen fantasy author, is motivated by the power of words to change lives. As a high school teacher, he's inspired by students' lives, many of whom struggle to overcome difficult social and personal issues. He believes the classroom is a place filled with brilliant and amazing stories. LIGHT RUNNER, premier book in a three book series, will be published by Vagabondage Press in January, 2016.

His widely read AstroFutureTrends blog was turned into a book, ON THE CUSP: ASTROLOGICAL REFLECTIONS FROM THE THRESHOLD.

What I mean is that there are times when I am supposed to step back and process what I'm writing. Writer's block can be a way my creative subconscious mind is communicating with me, telling me to step away for a little while, let it be. Other times, writer's block comes about when I've gone off-track on my story, so the writing gets hard because it's not where I should be going. The solution is to go back to wherever the detour started and work from there. Set the story straight.(less)

Yesterday, 2:30 p.m.: I’m sitting at a round table with a couple of teenagers, both with Down syndrome. I glance at the wall clock. Although I love being in this classroom because it is warm and accepting and makes me grateful, it’s near the end of the school day and I’m tired, a little bored. There are several adult aides in the classroom and they have things under control.
