About Ron Earl Phillips

Nestled in the foothills of West Virginia, Ron Earl Phillips lives with his wife, a daughter, a German Shepherd, and one too many cats.

He is a co-founder and publisher of Shotgun Honey, an online flashzine specializing in crime fiction established in 2011. Since 2013, Shotgun Honey has expanded into publishing, specializing in short consumable fiction publishing novellas, short story collections and serialized fiction.
