Barry worked for many years at large corporations as a technical writer and information professional. He has written enough policies, procedures and guidelines to fill several bookshelves but now has the luxury of creating his own worlds in works of fiction. When he isn’t writing, he volunteers for various good causes and spends time with family and friends. Barry has traveled extensively throughout the world. He was fortunate to live and work in Suzhou, China for two years and regularly returns there to visit friends. He has three grown children, a Chihuahua named Penny and lives full time in Estero. He is the author of two novels, “Take the Silk Road Home” and "Twisted Paradise-A Jake Chinelli Mystery." Both are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and in bookstores.
