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. 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 writing. Following a trilogy of books for young adults, he started to write action thrillers and ‘Countermeasures’ is the fifth story featuring DCI Charlie Watts and the MI6 agent, Daniel Rankin.
Barry still lives in Bristol where he enjoys spending time with friends, visiting the theatre, gardening and water-colour painting.
