Phil Giunta graduated from Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems back in the days when data was saved by chiseling it into stone. Phil continues to work in the IT industry, but honestly, he would love nothing more than to escape corporate America and open his own bait and tackle shop or explore outer space in a starship and maybe open a bait and tackle shop on another planet. At least he has a plan, but we digress...

Phil’s novels include the paranormal mysteries Testing the Prisoner, By Your Side, and Like Mother, Like Daughters published by Firebringer Press. His short stories appear in such anthologies as A Plague of Shadows from Smart Rhino Publications, Beach Nights and B

That could be as short term as a walk around the neighborhood, a workout, a fishing trip, movie, etc.

Since I always have multiple plates spinning, I might turn my attention to another writing or editing project, a home renovation, or an upcoming writers conference, or SF convention.

Of course, I'm occasionally pulled away from a novel or short story by other priorities, but I always return to the project with a fresh perspective, which can lead to better ideas for the story even if writer's block never came into play. (less)
