As we prepare for the launching this year of the final season of Tales from the Archives, we thought it might be a grand idea to highlight the authors who have helped us along the way. These are writers who have created wonderful characters and adventures for the Ministry, and we highly recommend you check out their other work. This week, we bring you one of our first authors from our first season, Phil Rossi.
Like many of our first season authors, Phil is a friend from the podcasting sphere. Tee had an early podcast about craft beers back in 2008. He also shared a publishing house with Tee and Pip.
Phil is a very accomplished writer and musician. His books Eden, and Crescent combine horror with science fiction in such a mind-bending fashion. While Harvey will make you look at small town America in new and twisted ways.
In the Shadows of Calcutta, Phil took the Ministry on its very first trip to India, and brought us a dark, twisty tale.
Phil Rossi is a musician, producer, writer, and voice actor who finds peace only when he is juggling multiple projects across creative disciplines. He fronts the Washington, DC based industrial groove machine, Gravity Lens and also has enjoys a healthy solo artist career, playing acoustic at pubs and vineyards all over the DC metro area. In 2016, he is planning the full launch of After Life Productions offering music production, voice over, and other creative services. In recent years, he has focused on sound design and industrial/electronic music composition and performance techniques. He is planning the release of a Gravity Lens EP in 2016 along with healthy live performance schedule. He also has plans for performing solo acoustic throughout the region in 2016. Notably, in 2003 Phil was nominated by the Washington Area Music Association for Best New Artist.
He has been deeply involved with fiction writing, blogging, and social media since he released his first podcast in 2006. In 2007, Phil released his debut, Amazon best-selling novel Crescent in 2007. Phil has a passion for story-telling matched only by the pleasure he derives from keeping his fans awake at night. Since it’s initial release, Crescent has lured tens of thousands of readers and listeners into a dark, twisted world of nightmares and things that go bump in the night. Phil’s writing has been paralleled to Stephen King, Philip K. Dick, and HP Lovecraft. He has a flair for vivid and often chilling imagery that lends itself to engrossing narratives and an undertone of inescapable, creeping dread. Phil lives in outside of Washington, DC in Virginia. He believes the need for sleep is a myth.
