Born in Bristol, Barry was educated at the Cathedral School and then read English at St Peter’s College, Oxford. After graduating, he worked in the Civil Service before teaching at a Bristol Secondary School. During this time, he read short stories on the local radio. Thinking he would like a change of career, he later qualified in Law at the University of West of England, but decided to remain in education. He expanded his teaching to include Law as well as English and Drama.
Barry is a keen amateur artist and has illustrated a number of texts for others as well as providing paintings for websites. He has also worked on set design for local drama groups and written several plays, including one musical.
A few years ago he took early retirement to concentrate on his writing. ‘Julius and the Titanic’ was the first in a series of historical adventures for young adults. This was followed by ‘Julius and the Mona Lisa’ and ‘Julius and the Black Hand’. ‘The Code-breaker’ is his first novel for adults. Barry still lives in Bristol where he enjoys spending time with friends, visiting the theatre, gardening and water-colour painting.
