Since I can’t seem to gain access to the top secret installation of Stony Man Farm near Shenandoah National Park, I find it every bit as cool to spend a half-hour in the company of Phil Elmore. For the past several years, Elmore has ghost written Executioner novels for Gold Eagle publishing, including the Stony Man series, his second entry of which hits the shelves in February.

Elmore is a professional writer, offering a variety of services through his website, philelmore.com. He also publishes the Martialist, an online magazine concerned with self-defense as “the inalienable right of every human being”. Elmore writes a variety of columns on a variety of subjects for a variety of publishers, some of which are detailed on the front page of his website. read more

As cool as it would be to interview the Spirit of Vengeance from behind the safety of a cell phone, I find it every bit as cool to spend a half-hour in the company of Phil Elmore.  For the past several years, Elmore has ghost written Executioner novels for Gold Eagle publishing; his latest novel Dangerous Tides prompted me to contact him and ask for the interview.

Elmore is a professional writer, offering a variety of services through his website, philelmore.com. He also publishes the Martialist, an online magazine concerned with self-defense as “the inalienable right of every human being”. Elmore writes a variety of columns on a variety of subjects for a variety of publishers, some of which are detailed on the front page of his website. read more
