PHIL MEWS TELLS THE STORY OF HOW HIS IDYLLIC NORTHERN CHILDHOOD IS BLOWN APART AS HIS PARENTS DIE WITHIN TEN WEEKS OF EACH OTHER - AND HOW HIS COMMUNITY RALLIED AROUND TO SAVE HIM.
Begun on a friend's advice as a cathartic exercise in relieving the pain of the loss of his parents, Orphan Boys is Phil Mews' first book to be published. Phil Mews has worked in television for eighteen years. Originally from Weardale in the north of England, he now lives in Scotland with his husband and a sock-stealing Jack Russell terrier. He is now writing his first novel.
