About The Publisher:
Philip Scott Wikel is a five star (Midwest Book Review) novelist, a graphic designer and former publisher of The Surfwriter’s Quarterly, who also dabbles in music (with band The Julian Day) and photography.
He studied Comparative Literature at UC-Santa Cruz and his lifelong passion for words led him to write poetry, short stories, two novellas and journalistic pieces which have found readership in various forms of publication, including “Green Surfing: The Shock of the New” in The Surfer’s Path.
He considers the high point of his writing career to be when he interviewed the musician Jack Johnson for Blue Edge magazine as it fused three of his favorite interests, music, surfing, and writing.
After making 5 extended trips to surf on Maui, beginning in 1986, Phil finally decided to make the island his home in 2012.
