 “This author knows the world of scams and scammers... these books are not just entertaining, they are educational into the bargain” 

– Australian Crime Fiction

It isn’t sleight of hand or smoke and mirrors that I make my living with – it’s words. 


As well as performing and speaking, I am also the author of two best-selling books, with my latest book due out in mid 2020. I also have a popular blog, Scamopedia, and a podcast, Scamapalooza.

My new novel will be out in 2020 (Pan Macmillan). For younger readers, it’s a memoir about growing up as a magician (that’s also a pack of lies).


“A sparkling debut about con artists on the make and on the lam… both entertaining and insightful.”

“Johnson has dealt us an excellent hand, at once exciting and intriguing, with a sprinkling of wry humour.”
