Nestled in the foothills of West Virginia, Ron Earl Phillips lives with his wife and his daughter, one cat too many, and house horse named Freya .
He is the managing editor for Shotgun Honey, an online flashzine specializing in crime fiction since 2011. This endeavor morphed into a job as publisher with the creation of One Eye Press in 2013, which specializes in short consumable fiction publishing novellas, short story collections and serialized fiction.
Prior to that he owned and managed Netizen Media, an internet design and hosting company, for nearly a decade before deciding to focus on writing. Ron was also contributing editor for Digital Webbing Press, a small press comic book company who published Digital Webbing Presents, Fist of Justice, Bloodrayne and a host of independent effort.
For five years jumping from his experience working with Digital webbing, Ron worked with Boom Studios! as their website/IT manager responsible for maintenance and site strategies. His secret hope of working that into a writing gig never materialized. It was a secret after all.
He currently works as a lead web developer for a local news media outlet to keep the lights on and the fridge full.
As an extension of his publishing, production, and online development background, Ron works on a limited basis with clients under the banner of Ron Earl Designs (RED+), which has been responsible for cover designs, book layouts, websites, and promotional material.
Ron Earl Phillips’ work has been included on A Twist of Noir webzine, and in the collections The Lost Children: Volume 1, Beat to a Pulp: Hardboiled, Off The Record, and Feeding Kate. He is laboring on his short story collection, Six Feet Cold, as well as longer projects.
