Philip C. Elrod was raised in Crossville, a small town on top of Sand Mountain in Northeast Alabama. He served two years in the US Army, stationed in Germany and returned to attend college at the University of Florida and Florida Southern College Majoring in Industrial Engineering and Economics.
Mylea is his first novel. However, over the years of his professional career he has written many articles and manuals on data collection, computer technology and technical trading of securities. His most recent articles have been published by FXTraderMagazine.com and other international magazines. In additional Mr. Elrod is the author of an eBook, See the Music of the Market, in which he describes a short term trading method for the futures, FOREX and stock markets. The eBook is available from Trading Between the Lines. Due to the many charts used in the eBook it is currently available only in PDF format.
Mr. Elrod resides, along with his wife of many years, Linda, and two wonderful little canine friends: Kokko, a five and half pound male Japanese Chin, and Tinker, a seven and half pound male miniature Shih Tzu. Tinker served as the inspiration for the fictional character, Mitch the Bitch. His interests include astronomy, photography, outdoor cooking and travel, especially RV travel with his wife and pets.
