Stephen Phillips, USN served as a Special Operations Officer and Navy EOD Technician at EOD Mobile Units Six, Ten, and Eight. Steve is a member of the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) and the Navy and Marine Corps EOD Association (N&MCEODA). Stephen Phillips is the author of Proximity: A Novel of the Navy's Elite Bomb Squad.

One reader of Proximity: A Novel of the Navy's Elite Bomb Squad said, “Author Stephen Phillips takes you on a wild ride with one of the Navy's elite Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) teams as they do their part in the Global War on Terror. The main character, LT Jascinski, gave up a promising career as a surface warrior because he wanted to pursue the high-speed low drag world of Navy EOD. In his first billet out of EOD school, he gets all he can handle as he and his team end up in the middle of a world-wide terrorist ring that may just have someone on the inside. Who will have the steady hand, and who will end up as a "big pink mist?"


Phillips writes from experience, and obviously knows what he's talking about. While the story is fiction, the author draws from his years as a Navy EOD Officer-in-Charge to develop the story and provide the technological balance all good military stories need in order to be believable. He also does an excellent job of developing the personal relationships between the LT and his men, the LT and his Chief Petty Officers, and finally the LT and his wife. The result is a fast moving, completely believable action story that's a great read for those who enjoy military fiction, especially Special Operations.”

One reader of Proximity: A Novel of the Navy's Elite Bomb Squad said, “While everyone is familiar with the Navy SEALS, few are aware of the much smaller EOD community. Stephen Phillips brings his first-hand experience to bear in this exciting tale of one EOD unit's role in defeating terrorism. Proximity provides a thorough background on EOD training and assignments, while the descriptions of places and technology are dead center accurate. The whole package is wrapped up in a thriller plot that gives Clancy and Coonts a run for their money.”
