"When asked for a bio, C.E. Barrett had this to say:
I started out life in the Canadian Maritimes and grew up there, in Quebec, Ontario and with a two year stint in Ireland. In 1995, I returned to the Maritimes and small town life. All this moving taught me early on that books were the friends you didn't have to leave behind, and a lifelong love ensued. I started writing stories that I wanted to read when I was very young--the stories that I couldn't find anywhere else. I'm still doing that."
