Talking about books, as I often do, author Philip
is in town to arrange the publishing of his debut novel, Shiny Objects of Desire. Philip hails from Australia and following a career in the Department
of Foreign Affairs and with United Nations peacekeeping missions in Iraq and Western Sahara, he turned to journalism drawing on his knowledge of Asia to write feature
articles for Australian and overseas newspapers and magazines. His first novel is set in Cambodia, where he lived for three years, and is the first in a projected series of detective mysteries following the adventures of Burl Biggins, the expat Australian owner of a Phnom Penh riverfront bistro.
