About the Author

Born in 1963 in, Essex, England, James was always a seeker, loving life and people. James education was marred with difficult teachers and, being shy, found languages a struggle and soon abandoned all hope of ever being able to converse in anything but English. Educated to Degree level in computer science, James had a thirst to go beyond his seeming limitations. A job in IT Pre-Sales found James needing to quickly pick up communication and presentation skills, and redundancy in 1991 left gave James the opportunity to travel and expand his horizons. In 1992 James started to open more and more to connection discovering a wonderful dance form called Biodanza and going on to manage a holistic holiday centre in Greece. Each year that followed led to a richer and richer life experience learning Pilates and the Guitar, becoming a Biodanza Teacher and Improv Comedy teacher. Since 2009, James has been looking after his parents in England and travelling in Asia, teaching and enjoying the culture and whenever he can, and writing in Bali. James has captured here the method he finally used to overcome his younger learning difficulties. A combination of Comedy Improv skill, an understanding of learning difficulties and a deep desire to share, gave birth to his remarkable book.
