Stevyn Colgan is an author, artist, public speaker and oddly-spelled Cornishman.
He has, among other things, been a chef, a brewer, a milkman, a comics publisher, a policeman and the official artist for the 2006 UK National Children's Book Fair. He's written briefing notes for two Prime Ministers, TV scripts for Gerry Anderson and Doctor Who, helped build dinosaur skeletons for the Natural History Museum and movie monsters for Bruce Willis to shoot at. Freddie Mercury once hugged him, Princess Diana once kissed him and rioters once set him on fire. Twice.
He has five books in print: 'Joined-Up Thinking' (Pan Macmillan), 'Henhwedhlow - The Clotted Cream of Cornish Folktales' (Kowethas An Yeth Kernewek), 'Connectoscope' (Unbound), 'Why did the Policeman cross the road?' (Unbound) and 'Saving Bletchley Park' (Co-Authored with Dr Sue Black) (Unbound).
He is also one of the 'elves' that research and write the popular BBC TV series 'QI' and its sister show, 'The Museum of Curiosity', for BBC Radio 4.
