An amateur American history buff, Phillip Goodrich has developed a fascination with the lesser-told stories behind the characters during America’s founding years. His interest has led him to extensive research into the personal and political lives of American greats such as Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Through his unique insights and knowledge, Phillip shares his findings in his first foray into the realm of narrative American history with Somersett.
A graduate of Northwestern University and the University of Southern California in medicine, Phillip is a practicing general surgeon in suburban Kansas City, MO. He has been an active member on physician forums for the past fifteen years and can often be found at philanthropic events across the country.
He lives with his wife Melodee, their geriatric dog, Loulou, and cat, Allie, in Platte City, MO.
