About the Author:
The author, Michael Brose, has been involved with mold making, casting, and puppet building since the late 1960's. He has had an interest in ventriloquism since age 10, and won first place in a talent contest at age 11, using a Jerry Mahoney vent doll and a routine from Paul Winchell's book 'Ventriloquism for Fun and Profit'. Michael evidently took this to heart! He has also personally worked with just about every mold making and casting material out there. In addition to being a professional figure maker, he has also earned his living as a professional mold maker for many years. Michael is in an elite class in this field, in that he is one of the very few that actually makes his living creating and selling high quality, professional, ventriloquist figures. The author is well known for his clear teaching and instruction, both in person and in print.
