About the author

Chester J Crump has spent a lifetime in cheese.  His company, CC Cheese Ltd,  was voted Door to Door magazine’s ‘Smallest Retailer of the Year’ from 1985-2007.   Cheddar Today described him as ‘Chester Crump, aged 45’, while the UK’s most successful broadsheet, The Daily Telegraph, has never mentioned him at all.

In his spare time, and under a completely different name,  Chester has written gags and sketches for a wide range of TV and radio shows both in the UK and mainland Europe (BBC1, ITV, S4C, Radio 2, Radio 4 and the World Service – among others).  A published writer for children, teenagers and adults, he has also performed stand-up comedy across Yorkshire and, in 2011, at the Edinburgh Fringe.

In his even more spare time, he’s also a comedy magician, after-dinner speaker and a member of the Magic Circle.

Ten years ago, he was rumoured to be the constant companion of Sarah Michelle Gellar – TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer – and, more recently, that girl out of EastEnders whose name no one can remember.

When he’s not writing his blog,  Chester attends second-hand hat conventions, and has what many believe to be the largest collection of used headgear in Yorkshire.

He is married to a woman, and lives in a house.

All the above is completely true – with the possible exception of the bits about cheese. And Buffy.  And EastEnders. 

And hats.

      I’m deeply honoured. I’m aware from other emails that I am ‘awesome’, ‘educational’ and ‘fantastic’ – albeit I could ‘improve my way of writing’. But, in the middle of a typically wet, drab and chilly UK summer, to be associated with any form of ‘sunshine’ is special indeed. 🙂
