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, Arizona, 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.
