The material provided on this site goes beyond the story to provide a larger picture of the world he created. The e-book is available for purchase at Barnes and Noble and Amazon.
The Portfolio section was created to display the digital art created by Barry. He first began using Photoshop at the end of 2014 and instantly fell in love with creating images. Barry never thought of himself as an artistically creative person until he began creating photo manipulations. He still sees himself as very much a beginner, but thoroughly enjoys creating digital art as a hobby. Most of his works are exhibited on DeviantArt, although there are several which are exclusively found here. If you are interested, please browse through the section, where you can comment or ask questions about each manipulation.
Axioms is one of the blog sections dedicated to useless trivia and fun facts. Barry researches each topic and attempts to explain it in a fun and interesting manner.

Sometimes he focuses on strange and unusual things most people may never think to ask, but he hopes you find it entertaining and informative.

You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.
You know, it's hard work to write a book. I can't tell you how many times I really get going on an idea, then my quill breaks. Or I spill ink all over my writing tunic.
Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of a job: it's always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins.
Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.
An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations.
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.
I like pie.
