Barnett, David

David Barnett is an award-winning journalist and has worked as a specialist correspondent, a news editor, a columnist and a features editor on newspapers in the north of England. He has reported from Bosnia and Kosovo; once made a pilgrimage to Jack Kerouac’s grave in Massachusetts; counts taking part in the “running of the bulls” at Pamplona’s St Fermin fiesta as his most frightening experience ever; and spent most of the Nineties lying in a field at the Glastonbury Festival wondering if it was time to go home yet.

David’s first novel, HINTERLAND, was published to critical acclaim in the UK earlier this year by Immanion Press. His second novel, ANGELGLASS, is set in Prague both in the present day and 1584, and mixing elements of the fast-moving thriller and literary SF, whilst his third, DON’T LET THEM TAKE YOU ALIVE, features the ghost of Sid Vicious, daytime TV and the security service’s Department for Extra-Usual Affairs, and is the first in a series starring the Department.

He is also the lead singer with charismatic pop combo Choppersquad.

David lives in West Yorkshire with his wife Claire, their young children Charlie and Alice, and two cats, Kali and Shiva.
