Nicholas J. Johnson (aka Tricky Nick) loves doing the impossible. Nicholas grew up in the circus, he really did become a professional magician by the time he was ten. (We told you it was a true story.) Today, Nicholas has gone on to become one of Australia's leading entertainers. Known as 'The Honest Con Man' Nicholas exposes the tricks behind the tricks; the crafty reasons why we're scammed, tricked and bamboozled. He's revealed the secrets of deception on The Project, A Current Affair, Sunrise and TODAY as well as at countless schools, libraries and organisations. He is the host of the monthly magic show Sleight Night, as well as a regular performer at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe. Nicholas is the author of two books for adults, Chasing the Ace (which was nominated for a Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction) and Fast and Loose. Tricky Nick is his first book for children.
