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.
