Phil Groom, Blogger, Poet and Short Story Writer

Phil Groom: Phil looking fishy

Phil Groom
Phil Groom is the News Editor and Webmaster for UKCBD, the UK Christian Bookshops Directory, out of which this site, the Christian Writers Directory, emerged. When running these projects isn't keeping him busy he tends to spend his time mowing the vicarage lawn or writing poems, short stories and various other articles, news reports and opinion pieces, mainly about the Christian book trade, the Church of England and mental health. His most recent reporting can usually be found on the Christian Bookshops Blog, christianbookshopsblog.org.uk, whilst his opinion pieces, poetry and short stories can be found on his personal blog, philgroom.wordpress.com.

He's also the founder of 5 Quid for Life, a mental health safety net, which provides emergency financial help for people with mental health difficulties who have fallen through the gaps in the benefits system.

Last but not least, he's bit of a geek who enjoys messing about with Filemaker Pro databases, drinks way too much coffee, loves chocolate (both coffee & chocolate preferably fairtrade) and reads a lot, mostly fantasy and historical/science fiction, with the odd shot of theology thrown in for good measure.
