Ken Frape

Ken spent an inordinate amount of time (trying ) to educate young people, some willing to learn and others, well, not so much. Always a very keen sportsman, Ken still harbours memories of sporting deeds of old but when his bones creak and his joints protest they remind him that they are just that, memories. A regular on-stage performer of other people's words, Ken recently decided to write a play for other people to act and he has read his own short stories in public on a number of occasions. His work is a mixture of magical realism, fantasy and black humour and he says to any who are interested, that he is on a learning curve as a writer, just like his former pupils.
