About the author

J.M. Phillips

J.M. Phillips is an author and retired Occupational Therapist. Motivated by the retelling of family stories, she wrote Lamlash Street, which is about navigating family life in London after World War II. She is a storyteller with a passion to inspire families to connect through the telling of their past.
​​​​​​​Growing up in the UK, J.M. emigrated to Canada after working in a London solicitor’s office for a few years. She spent 30 years working as an Occupational Therapist and Hospital manager before retiring.

Rather than slowing down the pace of life as she neared retirement, J.M. refocused her efforts enjoying each day with a zest for life. A technology and sci-fi fan with a thrill-seeking streak, she’s been cave swimming in Mexico and hopes to swim with dolphins.
During one of her many trips to visit her family in Bexleyheath, she was inspired to capture their memories of a way of life that is cherished by many. Pulling from her uncle’s World War II stories and her memories of her young life in the 1960’s, she aims to carry on his legacy with her books.

​​​​​​​She spent many years working in health care. She is currently splitting her time between the UK and Canada, maintaining close contacts with family, and at the same time discovering more fascinating family stories. Learn more at
