Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
In his first novel, d’Philip expresses the frustration and realization of learning to live life according to your goals, dreams and desires. Told in a journal format, for the most part, this epic road trip travel book follows Izzy Koatz as he makes his annual trip along Route 66, to sell his ideas to Hollywood. Along the way, however, he meets Josie Wails, an 18 year old Zuni princess who helps Izzy see, through all his trials and tribulations during this crazy road trip, his own self worth is through real love.

A Short Bio...

Born in 1961, d’Philip is the father of three children, has been happily married for 17 years and lives in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. He has dabbled with music, video and film; he has been a promoter, manager and producer. He even drove an 18 wheeler truck across country for a while, but always, throughout his life, d’Philip Chalmers has been a writer. “It’s what I do, it’s who I am, dig?” he is fond of saying, “I can’t help but write!”

In 2011, along with partners George Alexis, Charlie Adams and Baron Harmon, d'Philip help to form Mother Road Media Dreams LLC, a media development company which represents his creative work in the entertainment industries.

In his down time d’Philip enjoys spending time with his family playing games or taking extended road trips, plucking on his Beatles Bass and just enjoying life as it happens naturally…

Although still an advocate of this self-publishing model, I must admit my worldwide sales of this novel number less than 1,000 copies and I am too creatively engaged to simply keep pimping the same novel over and over. I made a choice at the first of this year…

Ninety-nine thousand seven hundred and twelve, what does that mean? Is that the number of copies of “SCHLEP

I’ve sold so far? Is it the number of days I have left on the planet? Is it how

much my own personal debt is or is it the amount of my total net worth? It

could be the number of things that I’m Grateful for or it might be the number

The High Road Home (Excerpt from "SCHLEP" by d'Philip Chalmers)

There’s an exit off of the Interstate just past Grand Island, Nebraska where there is nothing there. You get off the not very busy Interstate and there is just a long, lonely road that

goes into the deep dark night to the north and south. We made a right, heading

south, and drove for a little while until we came to a clearing next to the

road where there…
