Roger Blakiston was born in Northumberland, England. He is a professional magician, author, visionary, and poet.
In 2014 he published his
first book: “The Spiritual Stage.” This
is his second book, and it is a
compilation of his poetry spanning nearly sixty
years. He lives in the magical and inspiring town of Sedona,
where he has written much of his recent poetry.
As a comedy magician, Roger Blakiston has performed all over the
world, including television shows in five countries, three summer
seasons in Italy, six months touring Australia, numerous trips to the
Persian Gulf (Qatar, Dubai, and Bahrain), and on fifteen different
cruise ships. He has also worked extensively as an actor, master of
ceremonies, presenter and voice over talent for radio and television
commercials, industrials, and live performances.
Roger has a vast knowledge of the geography,
history, culture, art, and languages of other nations, realizing that
the smiles are universal. From palaces to castles and bomb shelters, for
royalty, and for those who have been outcast, he has traveled across
the world’s oceans and walked over mine fields to perform his magic.
Roger’s ancestors were famous explorers, pirates, and royalty. He was
born into a family of writers and travelers with a deep sense of
imagination. Roger has walked in the steps of both great leaders and
prophets, and over lands which have witnessed terrible wars.
Roger has been a featured writer in Abracadabra,
the world’s only magical weekly, and The Magic Circular, the magazine of
The Magic Circle and the world’s most prestigious magic society. He was
also a regular columnist in M.U.M., the magazine produced by the
Society of American Magicians, and the Kidabra Journal, the voice of the
kid show world.
