Ronnie started magic at a very early age after his Grandad taught him a trick about attaching a half full matchbox to his wrist with an elastic band. His teenage years were filled with visits to his local library hiring and rehiring The Complete Illustrated Book Of Close Up Magic.
When, in his twenties, and after a chance meeting with Steven Hamilton in Roy Walton's shop in Glasgow, Ronnie left magic tricks and focused on cards.
Putting Walter Gibson's book aside and taking up The Royal Road To Card Magic, he became obsessed with sleight of hand card work. With Steve Hamilton and Roy Walton recommending what books to study it wasn't long before he was working in Glasgow restaurants and pubs performing close up magic. As an avid fan of Dai Vernon's early work, this influenced Ronnie to start taking notes of his effects. Taking notes on what worked. Taking notes on what natural movements could be replacing certain sleights.
Recently Ronnie decided to start transferring those notes into book form. You WILL be hearing more from him.
