Michael Anthony Phillips was born in St. Louis, Missouri on July 20, 1961. His father worked as a Private Investigator and was an avid classic movie watcher who kept Michael up late at night watching movies with him. As a kid Michael and his brother Sam stayed up late nights listening to the Mystery Theatre the radio that carved Michael’s fondness for great storytelling.
Michael enjoyed playing Baseball as a youth and played all the way through College and being invited to several Major League camps for tryouts. Affected by the tragic death of Bruce Lee on his birthday in 1973, Michael became an avid Martial Artist and when he knew it was now or never to follow his dreams, Michael left his hometown to be an actor in Hollywood, and to study martial arts with Bruce Lee’s former students in the late 90’s through the next decade.
After working on countless television shows, videos, films, and commercials, he decided to try his hand at writing, and started screenwriting and writing short stories for various literary magazines.
Michael’s mother played a key role in his life while he pursued his craft, providing a place to stay when he came home from the West Coast, and peace of mind from multiple distractions.
After a decade in Hollywood, M. Anthony decided to put his acting aspirations on hold and returned to St. Louis to write fulltime. Having a passion to write about things that today’s Hollywood fail to grasp; M. Anthony is inspired to do things his way.
Now working on his fourth novel, M. Anthony Phillips hopes his name becomes synonymous with all the great writers of the present and the past, and to inspire a generation of writers of his own.
