Biography

Derek A Barrass

After running my own business I decided to retire early and write books to pass the time away. For several years before this I researched my family tree and a story jumped from the pages, I called it The Poison of a Second Son. From the same source another story appeared which I titled, Letter of Reflection. Since then I can hardly wait to finish a story as a new one is starting to form. I have covered many subjects over the past few years and now have nine on Amazon kindle.
Two more stories are in the pipeline, one is about a possessed computer, What Lies Behind the Firewall! The other is a story about Aliens who plan to take over Earth, as yet untitled.
