Raised by feral hillbillies in the Oklahoma foothills of the Ozark Mountains, F.M. Phillips self-published her first work of fiction at age eight. Since that time, her greatest passion remained the written word. Phillips worked as an attorney until she left active law practice to write the debut fiction novel, Ezekiel’s Wheels.
The peculiar story channels inspiration from the historical account of The Trail of Tears as well as from Native American legend surrounding the Hornet Spooklight. Ezekiel’s Wheels propels the reader on a spectral road trip to the haunted badlands between love and possession … and steps out for a look over the edge.
In addition to fiction, Phillips pens short stories, essays and music reviews for a variety of online and print magazines.
