When you’re a kid life can seem tough, and tougher for some than others. But the darkest of times can be the most enlightening, and in the case of Steven Frayne from a rundown estate in Bradford this couldn’t be truer. When his late granddad showed him magic for the first time, Steven knew there was more to life than hiding from bullies. He had a destiny. A calling. In that moment Dynamo was born: the most exciting magician of the 21st century. Since then, Dynamo has shocked, thrilled, and amazed men, women, and children, from all walks of life, all over the world. With his mind-blowing illusions, he has catalyzed a whole new era of magic. Now, in his very first book, Dynamo invites you to join him on a breathtaking journey across the globe. Be prepared to levitate Lindsay Lohan in Singapore, transform snow into diamonds in the Austrian mountains, and walk on water across the River Thames. Along the way, he reveals how to make the impossible possible, what it takes to pull off the greatest stunts man has seen, and why everyone needs magic in their lives. This is no illusion. This is the real story of awe-inspiring Dynamo.

At the same time, he was forced to battle a debilitating form of Crohn’s disease as well as playground bullies. After being introduced to magic by his beloved granddad and receiving a loan from the Prince’s Trust, he carved out a career as one of the most respected magician and illusionists in the world.
