PHILLIP TOMASSO is the award winning author of over 17 novels.

He began his career writing mystery and suspense novels in 2000. Since, he has gone on to publish books in a wide variety of genres, including Horror, Young Adult, Science Fiction, and Fantasy.

His first short story was published in 1995, and he was paid a penny a word. It was an 8,000 word western.

However, it being a Canadian publication—and at a time, when the U.S. dollar was worth more—his check was for just under $40.00. It was a great starting point, and has been selling regularly since then.
