Caspar was born in London, moving between green fields and city streets throughout his childhood. After being expelled from Summerhill School at 8 years of age, his career in learning and earning his money ‘creatively’ was secured. A father in prison, his own time in crime, led finally to a redemptive path, publications in fiction, non-fiction, plays and works for BBC Radio 4, columns with The Guardian, Resurgence and Positive News.
His memoir, Criminal, led to the founding of the outdoor education charity, Write to Freedom for which he won an award. The novels, Blood Road and Tribe Warrior followed to high acclaim. His love of spoken word led to the creation of Words Allowed in Bristol which toured the UK bringing many new writers to the stage and page alongside the likes of Helen Dunmore, Ian Banks and Clive Barker. His love of performance remains to this day. Caspar is a seasoned, impassioned retreat leader and tutor, working with nature connection, meditation and creative writing to create a unique trinity titled, Words from the Earth.
