Gregory Phillips - The Exile


Tango dancer, musician, and author Gregory Erich Phillips will be reading, discussing and signing copies of his latest novel The Exile. In the book, Leila, a Colombian immigrant and successful mortgage broker, has a seeming seemingly perfect life…until the mortgage crisis of 2008, an ill-timed romance with her boss’ son, and a looming deportation warning threaten to ruin everything. Phillips' debut novel, Love of Finished Years, won the grand prize in the prestigious Chanticleer Reviews international writing competition and The Exile, won first place for mainstream fiction in the Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest. Gregory uses his diverse life experiences to enrich the characters in his novels and aims to shine light on universal truths through the hero(ine)’s journey.
