Bristol Renaissance Faire 2018

Well, it's that time of the year again. A time for dragons, fairies, wizards, warlocks, witches and food. Yes, the Bristol Renaissance Faire is back in town and I'm packing my bags to head back home to the land where Fantasy rules.

So, I’m kind of writing a children’s book and here’s the first look at Little Johnny Magician.

  Little Johnny Parker is an 8 year old boy. More than anything in this world, he dreams of one day growing up and becoming a Magician. Much to the angst of his father, Johnny began to hone one particular skill that he has become very good at. With the power of his magic wand (and a little imagination) he is able to transform everyday life into not so ordinary everyday things. Although sometimes his imagination gets the best of him... And eats the last piece of Pizza.   The evolution of collaboration has many faces and at points [...]
