A Brief History of Dean Fraser

I began my quest to learn more about human potential over three decades ago. Taking a year out from my then corporate life, I read hundreds of books, travelled to ancient sacred sites and networked with fellow seekers of wisdom around the world. I never returned to the corporate world. I identify these days as a mixed soup of Pagan Wiccan with Zen Buddhist tendencies! 

Each year I write for around thirty magazines across the world on subjects diverse as dowsing, mindfulness and of course, sharing my poetry.

Holistic Living Found Me

This all began thirty years ago. Looking for a book to read during my few day's home vacation, as I strolled around a book store a book fell off a shelf at my feet. The book in question was Star Signs by Linda Goodman. I bought the book. So began my quest of learning. This directly led to me opening my wholesale business The Strawberry Crystal, designing my own range of crystal, chakra and dowsing kits, which I supplied to retailers in Canada, Spain, Sweden and my native UK. 

Along the way I gained a qualification in Body Language Psychology, the springboard for me getting asked to give talks. These early speaking engagements I shared ways to deal with stress naturally, I offered crystal healing workshops and talked dowsing. Discovering I enjoyed public speaking more than running a wholesale business, I took the decision to close it and focus all my attention on giving talks and writing.

My live events have moved on from those embryonic days; the show I perform now is centered around storytelling. I call it Holistic Storytelling; real life stories with a message behind them we can all learn from to play forward into our own lives. See HERE to know more about Holistic Storytelling.

Enter The Quantum Poet

I picked up this moniker on my first UK poetry tour back in 2013. A radio host introduced me as Dean Fraser - The Quantum Poet, I never did find out why! The Quantum Poet though does reflect my holistic approach to the way I write poetry, it must be from my heart otherwise it doesn't work. So perhaps 'The Quantum Poet' was meant to be after all.

Unlike my first tour which saw me away from home for two hundred days. and saying yes to any opportunity to get in front of an audience to establish myself; these day I have the luxury of cherry-picking the places I choose to perform . 

I am currently taking bookings for my 2024/5 show Beyond Poetry. See HERE for more details.

Who Is Decanus Fragaria?

Over the past decade I've been writing my more leftfield books under the occult name I first used at the moot I belonged to back in the 90's.  

Ghosts, Demons and Psychic Healing Casebook remains, even to this day, my most personally surprising book. It went viral with no promotion whatsoever, becoming the number one best-selling occult title five weeks running on Amazon worldwide back in 2016 when I wrote it. I've recently updated the book, adding in more background to each story, brand new photos and completing a story I left in the original edition open ended as I needed to return to the location for more insights; for the new edition I returned and although I completed the story, I left with even more mysteries to ponder.

I'm in the final throes of writing an occult themed novel which, all being well, should see the light of day before Summer 2024.  To read more about what I do as Decanus and my Spooky Stories Show see HERE for more details.



As anyone who has witnessed one of my shows will attest, I give everything of myself at these events. I am asked if I ever get nervous before a show. I am not even aware of myself or what I say when performing, it's kind of like some out-of-body experience, I don't ever get nervous.

My events are all about my audiences! 

If you would like to book me for an event please get in touch.
