About Me

Kevin Groves currently lives in ‘White Cliffs Country’, Dover, UK. From a young age he found a love for ancient Egypt as well as many other historical periods ultimately developing perfumes ( to express the love.

Much of Kevin’s story telling revolves around the classic literature of ancient Egypt, although he still enjoys drawing on tales across the centuries – including some that leap beyond the mundane and pull from his enjoyment of fantasy and gothic horror genres.

Kevin welcomes any invitation to talk at your festival or private event in person or over video link. Drop him a message and see where it will take you! Use the form below to contact me or if you rather use phone then 07900 230783 or email kgroves [at] will also work.

You can find a lot of free and public material on my YouTube channel at: Some Pay On Demand recordings for ticketed events can be found in my Shop above.

Kevin is a contributor to international, national and local projects, groups and events.
