About Lewis Jones

​

Lewis Jones was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. A state scholarship took him to Cambridge University, where he graduated in Modern Languages. After leaving Cambridge he immediately began writing radio drama and short stories for the BBC.

​

He spent 10 years in Singapore as a script writer and producer for national radio, and is now an honorary member of Singapore’s IBM Ring 115 – the Great Wong Ring.

​

On his return to Britain as a freelance writer, he scripted a number of science series for the BBC for several years, acted as linguistic consultant and series editor for HarperCollins, was a member of the UK’s Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, and a columnist for Skeptical Briefs (a publication of the US Committee for Scientific Investigation (CSI)).

​

In Paul Daniel's BBC show broadcast on 22nd February 1992 Paul and Debbie McGee presented a mindreading effect which Lewis had published in "Person to Person: a Book of Telephone Telepathy". It was only when watching the show that he knew his effect was being used.

​

Paul and Debbie's presentation of this effect can be seen on YouTube here.

​

Lewis's Pattern Principle formed part of the effect that Rick Lax used to fool Penn and Teller - Binary Code (available here). An updated version of the Pattern Principle appears as "Tell" in “The Magic Gourmet.”:
