About Philip Shirley
Philip Shirley's latest novel THE GRACELAND CONSPIRACY has been called by critics "preposterously entertaining," and "crazy good fun." A review in Mississippi Libraries Journal said, "I highly recommend this novel to Elvis fans, but more specifically to public libraries or any libraries with Mississippi fiction writers’ collections."
First Draft magazine called TGC "an ingenious mystery."
He has published more than 100 works, including two mystery/thriller novels, a collection of short literary fiction, two books of poetry, and a cultural history of professional baseball and its relationship to Louisville Slugger bats. His collection of short stories titled OH DON'T YOU CRY FOR ME was a finalist for the Jefferson Prize.
Philip has received dozens of awards for his writing, including awards for fiction, speech writing, poetry and feature writing.
