1. Graeme Parker is NOT a pen name.
2. Can't ride a bicycle and has a broken nose to prove it.
3. Can do impressions, but is banned from doing his Frank Spencer one, as it shows how old he is.
4. Broke his knee playing American football without anyone actually touching him. Bloody astro turf!
5. Proposed to his first wife on Abbey Road, which seemed a romantic thing to do at the time as they were both big Beatles fans. But after nearly getting run over & having his "proposal" captured on film by a group of Japanese tourists, he wished he hadn't "Done It In The Middle Of The Road!"
6. Is a huge Doctor Who fan and to this day, on hearing the theme tune, hides behind the sofa!
7. Can play the William Tell Overture by banging his fists on his skull and making a hollow noise!
Graeme Parker is the main cog in the Kensington Gore wheel, but like most cogs he likes to get well and truly oiled as often as he can.
His inspirations are old school horror, seeing the beauty in dark things, and finding humour everywhere. He was born and raised in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. From an early age he wanted to be a comedian or a writer and over the years he has found an outstanding balance of the two. He has performed as a stand up comedian, doing one liner gags, but his writing was always more character based.
Graeme started his writing career with Kensington Gore's Twisted Tales (short stories) and has continued to find success in the horror and comedy combined industry of writing.
He published his best selling comedy diary Kensington Gore: Another Year Closer To Death in November 2012. Has also published many short stories collections Kensington Gore's Hammered Horror - Gory Bitsin October 2014 & The Worst, Best of Kensington Gore April 2016.
Graeme, is a clown at heart; he has co-written joke books with his sometime writing partner Leesa Wallace and is currently working on 101 Best British Sitcoms with writer, comedian and comedy historian Phil Swales, who go under the collective title "Two Funny Old Farts!"
Graeme often publishes short story collections to help charities. Such as Femme Fataleto help female horror writers and victims of domestic violence. Kensington Gore's Twisted Tails to help animal welfare charity.
Graeme now lives in Dundee Scotland, to be close to the love of his life, Sandra, a very understanding lady that has to put up with not only his writing creative moods and tantrums but his exceedingly bad jokes and puns.
