Gervase Phinn – comedian, author, poet, broadcaster, lecturer, educational guru, after-dinner speaker and 'born raconteur' (The Guardian) - is perhaps best known for his best-selling series of five Dales books for Penguin.
Affectionately dubbed 'the James Herriot of Schools', Gervase has written a wide range of academic books, children's poetry and fiction and is a columnist on the Yorkshire Post and The Countryman.
'Gervase Phinn is one of the most accomplished public speakers of any kind. A natural storyteller, he combines the timing of the professional comedian with palpable warmth and the ability to deliver a message that is more than just a series of jokes.” (The Times).
