John P Barker


My name is John Barker and I have been writing, as a hobby, for many years now. A couple of years ago, I wrote a story for my daughter and called it Cobweb. It is the story of a young girl and her ghost horse who have various adventures together. As she enjoyed it a great deal, I decided to publish it for others to read. After receiving emails from readers asking for more, I have now written a second story and hope to write a third soon.

    A sad story and I share your grief. People say it gets easier over time but it doesn't really, we just learn to cope. A first hand account of how it feels to lose a loved one, something we must all go through at some time in our lives.
