I was inspired to write The Great Hollywood Double Hustle when one fateful night, I accidentally stumbled across a professional look-alike website and found myself crying with laughter as I scanned all the good, the bad and the obviously unhinged celebrity doubles.
Some were genuinely remarkable doubles, capable of convincing anyone that they were the legitimate star but others were so genuinely deluded that they were further away from their supposed double than a politician is from the truth. Needless to say, once I finished laughing, I started writing.
I hope you enjoy my book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I was born in Stirling, Scotland and we emigrated to Australia when I was fifteen months old. I didn’t want to leave and apparently I cried a lot on the plane. There’s a vicious rumour that a missing loaf of bread had something to do with my parents leaving so suddenly, but my critics will do anything to discredit me! We settled in Melbourne and eventually the outer eastern suburb of Bayswater North. I started writing very early on because we had no television and I hate playing sports of any description. I’m one of those Aussies who’s never surfed, hates beaches in the summer and thinks cricket is the most boring game on the planet.

Alexander Ivlev was born in Russia in 1962. He started writing when he was 10 years of age. He created his own character named Nos and wrote a lot of funny stories about him, drawing the illustrations for his mini books as well.
In 1975 somebody gave to Alex a book called "Gymnastics for a brain". Alexander learned a lot about an autogenic system for self-relaxation from that book. That's how he became fascinated by hypnosis as a shortcut to achieving goals.
When Alex was 15, he founded his first rock band. Learning electric guitar was easy for him. 35 years later Alexander Ivlev is a hypnotic healing music composer and a guitar player.

Pilgrim. Pilgrim. Pilgrim. Clown.
Elias Barton's art always stood out, even in his elementary school hallways. His creations weren't like the others. Raised in an ultra-conservative family that rejected the celebration of holidays, he was taught to avoid being a "part of the world." When his class was tasked with a holiday art project, Barton had to adjust. Thus, a construction paper clown stood among paper pilgrims, a spider walked among Valentine hearts, a lone boy among classmates, a sole observer with a limitless imagination.
It was music and literature that peeled back the night allowing Barton to see. Art provided the mentors and counselors that he'd never found elsewhere. Barton preferred walking wit ... read more
