    About

    Thank you for taking time to look at my website. Please read a little about me to explain the diversity on offer.

    When I was at school, I was sometimes sent to stay with Crazy Uncle Jack. In the circus and showground world, he was known as Skin Dude; The World’s Most Tattooed Man. Today he would probably look quite normal, but back then he turned heads. Mum and Dad (who btw were the World’s Oldest Parents) would send me off for long periods with Uncle Jack. It was my education. I developed a thirst for magic and entertainment. Jack knew that I was by nature a magician - and he taught me all he knew. I travelled the wide-world (and the nether-world) performing as one half of an act called ‘The Incredible Blood Brothers’.

    However, writing has always been my passion - diary writing; poetry; fiction, non-fiction, and a mixture of both. I wrote a short book once about some of my favourite acts. I am a writer, a teacher, a trainer and a performer. My main focus these days is ‘Restorative Justice’, I have been commissioned by Her Majesty’s Home Office to produce a number of resources for anti-bullying and crime prevention.

     

    A couple of years ago, Princess Anne invited me to Buckingham Palace to receive the Butler Trust Award for engaging young people in the Arts.

     

    I have a black belt in the established Northern Culinary Arts, [chip butties, parched peas, and blind scouse].
