Phillip DePoy

Welcome

Phillip DePoy began his work as a writer in 1965 with the Actors and Writers Workshop. Ten years later he had become a published poet and acquired a masters degree in performance art. Soon thereafter he became a writer in residence for the Georgia Council for the Arts and a nationally reviewed performance artist. In the 1980s he was the composer in residence for the Academy Theatre. In the 1990s he was the Artistic Director of Theatrical Outfit, a professional, Equity theatre. Since then he has served as the director of several university theatre programs.

He has also seen five of his Flap Tucker mysteries published at Dell (one was a Shamus finalist), seven Fever Devilin novels and a stand alone called THE KING JAMES CONSPIRACY from St. Martin's, and a very nice work of non-fiction called THE TAO AND THE BARD from the Arcade house. There have also been forty-two productions of plays he's written, including the Edgar Award winning EASY, best mystery play of 2002. He was also GACS 2012 Author of the Year.
