Meet the Author: Marie Phillips

Marie Phillips

Marie Phillips told us what led her to imagine Greek Gods living a pretty miserable life in Hampstead today in Gods Behaving Badly. Artemis is a dog-walker on the Heath, Apollo a cheesy TV host and Aphrodite a telephone sex operator. A hilarious novel about myths, faith and love.

Marie Phillips studied Anthropology and worked in TV. Gods Behaving Badly is her first novel.
