Having worked as a mentalist, he discovered that his effects were often based on tricks used by con men to swindle honest people from their hard-earned money. Using his craft as a springboard, Mr. Ward began researching various schemes to defraud unwitting victims, and he has compiled his findings into a book called Brother Can You Spare a Dime? And Other Popular Cons, along with suggested defenses again each con. (Sadly, however, this book is currently out of print.) His younger brother Tim has since picked up a magic wand and has taken over the Ward family tradition of performing. Visit his website at TimWardMagic.com.
