About Philip

Phil Newman, a retired Senior Concorde Flight Engineer, has turned his hand to romantic adventure novels to carry the green, sustainable, energy message. The Matriarch series of books are based on the findings of Christopher Jordan, as found in his "Secrets of the Sun Sects", and on his own, extensive, travels in the Southern Ocean, Antarctica, and the tropical rainforests. Philip brings adventure and excitement to the science of renewable energy and the study of the Ancients' use of the Sun.
