"John was an inspiration and captivated all our children with his vivid imagination and exciting approach to both telling and planning stories. Two very enjoyable days that stimulated some wonderful work on designing and creating  characters."
 (Sarah Blower, Wednesfield Village Primary School, Wolverhampton)

Welcome to the Storyjohn website

I'm a writer and storyteller living in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands of the UK.  I work a lot in education and the wider community, and have also written extensively for theatre, corporate film and BBC Radio.  I used to be an actor, but the arrival of two children changed all that.

At the moment, this site is about several things, including:

My work as a writer and storyteller in education

My work as a writer and storyteller in the wider community

My work as a performer.
