Philip McCormac was born in Ulster but now lives in Leicestershire, UK. He has been a vegetarian for many years and did dabble with veganism but found this very difficult and settled for remaining a lacto-vegetarian which means he excludes fish flesh and fowl from his diet but does not exclude dairy produce. He just loves cheese When he first started writing he wrote short horror and also a series of articles on New Age Philosophy for BURNING ISSUES – now defunct. À Stories published in:- ‘IRELAND’S EYE’. ‘UNHINGED’ – horror zine. ‘VISIONARY TONGUE’ fantasy zine. ‘ALL HOLLOWS’ the magazine of the Canadian Ghost Society.
