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!
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. Graeme often publishes short story collections to help charities. Such as Femme Fataleto helping 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.
Some of life's strangest and funniest questions.
G.S. Parker can't supply the answer he just asks the questions.
If you think you know the answers then get in touch or write your own book, but until then enjoy the strange and wonderful world where some questions simply do not have an answer.
Questions like... Why are the British so obsessed with talking about the weather?
Why are there Grandfather and Grandmother clocks but no parent clocks?
If love is “never having to say sorry…” Why the hell do husbands have to do it all the time?
Plus many more...
Kensington Gore's Weird & Wonderful World is a very strange place to live in.
This book looks back at some of the strange goings on in 2017 with an irreverent tongue in check, acidic wit that only comes from esteemed writer Kensington Gore.
Once you read Kensington Gore's Weird & Wonderful World, you’ll never look at the world, nor the people in it, quite the same way again.
The best, or as some might say the worst of Kensington Gore. All in one place.
A very big tomb, but no grave can hold Kensington Gore and he will get out and scare you to death.
You may very well die laughing!
This book contains - the hit comedy horror novel - "Another Year Closer To Death" as well as old and new short stories by the master of horror Kensington Gore and comedic alter ego Graeme Parker.
KG: What or who inspired you to be a writer?
GP: I’ve always enjoyed telling stories, and tall tales from an early age. I’ve always loved comedy and horror. I think no one has really combined the two in book form so I thought why not give it a go.
KG: What gave you the idea of your latest book?
I’ve always loved great characters. I’ve loved the movies and reading reviews.
KG:Who is your favourite writer and why?
GP: So many, and they change on a daily basis, loved early Stephen King. James Herbet,
I love Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers.
KG: Do you read a lot? If so what are you reading right now?
GP: I don’t read as much as I would like, I feel my time is filled with writing. I’m reading a lot of history of horror Hammer Horror and the golden age of Hollywood Horror for a big project that is very hush, hush.
KG: What's your favourite book of all time?
GP: Hound of the Baskervilles was always a big favourite and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein. Such a great idea from someone so young.
KG: What other writing projects are you working on now?
GP: Probably too many to go int. Film scripts, comedy, and two real original horror novels that I am so proud of and feel will blow people away.
KG: What do you like most about writing?
GP: Creating worlds, the escapism. When I write about something I love, and the words are flowing it’s one of the greatest feelings imaginable.
KG: Where do you see yourself and your writing in five years’ time?
GP: Keep doing what I love, working with other creative people. Making readers laugh, be scared and a little uncomfortable.
I’ve got so many great ideas and just wish I had three life times to get them all out. But I don’t plan too much which one comes next, I try the stories and characters on like a suit and if the fit feels right I run with that one.
KG: What one, key writing tip would you share?
GP: Write what you love, and you are bound to find someone else to love it too.
KG: What would you say to educate and inspire young writers?
GP: Have fun, don’t worry about making mistakes, always look forward, and learn your craft. Writing is a craft and you must develop it. You must know when to let your work out not the big wide world too, don’t over analgise as that way lies madness.
