About Liam Barnes

Liam Barnes was born and raised in Haverfordwest, the sprawling central metropolis of Pembrokeshire, in 1987. After a few detours in Lancashire and New Zealand, in 2006 he skipped over the border into England and studied Classics and Ancient History at the University of Manchester, graduating conveniently into a lovely recession. A couple of years of scraping coins together followed before he coughed up and trained as a journalist, and after a few more odd jobs and an extensive tour of the UK looking for work, he finally landed a reporter job on a policing magazine in 2012.

Currently living with his jacket in Stoke-on-Trent, Liam is working hard on one of the UK's leading local newspapers, but still has the notes for a number of other side-projects that probably won’t come off. When not idly planning other interesting things to do, he can also be seen wandering about, heard complaining about the fortunes of Aston Villa Football Club or caught listening to far too much progressive rock.
