Phillip Jeffrey Marshall was born in Denver, Colorado in September of 1987. He grew up in Colorado, until his family moved to the island of Kauai, in the Hawaiian Isles, when Phillip was 9. On Kauai, Phillip began acting in the community group, Hawaii Children's Theater. His first role was as Tumnus the Faun, in The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. Phillip went on to act and do technical work in over a dozen shows on Kauai. After Phillip turned 14, his family returned to Colorado, and he continued acting in high school productions in Arvada, Colorado. Following graduation, Phillip attended the University of Northern Colorado, where he received a Bachelor's Degree in English, with an emphasis in education and theater. Shortly after graduation, Phillip began writing 'DESTINY OF A DREAMER' (Book One of THE SAGA OF THE BRUADAIR CLAN), in July 2010. In the winter of that year, Phillip's father, Jeffrey Gurn Marshall, fell very ill, and Phillip spent the next several months at the hospital with his father and mother. Jeffrey received a Liver transplant that February, and he began to recover. Phillip finished writing 'DESTINY OF A DREAMER' by his father's bedside. In April of this year, 2011, Phillip's father, Jeffrey, passed on to the next journey, due to internal complications. Phillip dedicated 'DESTINY OF A DREAMER' to his father, and went back to Kauai with his mother to grieve.
Mr. Marshall now lives in Denver, Colorado, where he enjoys the beautiful mountain scenery. His hobbies include: hiking, camping, biking, swimming, kayaking, frisbee golfing, and various other outdoor activities. He also enjoys reading with his cat Eva curled up in his lap, going to movies or out on the town with friends, and playing board games like 'Settlers of Catan.' His other hobbies include: painting, cooking, making recycled art, singing, dancing, and acting.
Besides his aspirations to bring 'DESTINY OF A DREAMER' and (THE SAGA OF THE BRUADAIR CLAN) to the world, Phillip also wishes to pursue his acting/singing career. And, one day, he hopes to open up a theater of his own, where he will sponsor acting classes, as well as putting on plays and musicals.
Phillip's message to his reader's is to believe in the magic of your dreams, believe in the impossible, and open your mind to the realities that lay just beyond the surface. For your dreams are more achievable than you may know...
