Review by Brian Watson, Magical author and creator
“Storytelling for Magicians” should be in the library of every serious student of magic. Every student that wants to elevate their magic from “tricks” into pieces of theatre that is. Not only does Cara explain the fundamentals of script writing and story telling, she also gives examples of both works in progress and finished pieces for the reader to see her process in action. Highly recommended!
