About the Author
George Layton has combined a successful acting career with a successful writing career. He has played leading parts on stage in New York, Australia and the West End, in productions as well-known and popular as Oliver! and Chicago, opposite other actors and actresses as acclaimed as Maureen Lipman and Lynda Bellingham. On television he has both appeared in and written several very successful comedy series, such as Don’t Wait Up, It Ain’t Half Hot, Mum and Minder and, perhaps most famously, he was the narrator of Pigeon Street . In July 2000 George received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from the University of Bradford in recognition of his work as an actor and writer.
The Trick is George Layton’s third collection of short stories for Macmillan. The first, The Fib, has sold over a quarter of a million copies and is on the National Curriculum, and his second collection, The Swap, was also published to critical acclaim both here and in the US. George has most recently contributed to Michael Morpurgo’s Macmillan anthology of war stories.
