John C. Sherwood
John C. Sherwood is a professional writer/journalist, magician and mentalist born in Michigan in 1950. A student of Neil Foster, he wrote monthly columns -- "Just for Us Young Guys" and "Lost in the Forest" -- for The New Tops from 1966 through 1992, and graduated from the Chavez school in 1981.
As a teenager in the early 1960s, Sherwood wrote a column, "Miscellaneous," for Top Hat, published by Magical Youths International, and in the 1970s wrote two books published by Micky Hades, "The Conjurer's Calculator" and "The Circuited Sorcerer."
Noted for his hundreds of mentalism performances in the character of Sherlock Holmes from 1987 to the present, Sherwood has been best known to magicians as a writer of mini-biographies of fellow performers, for The News Tops and for "Vibrations," the publication of the Psychic Entertainers Association.
