    Your biggest fan

  • Hello Sky,

    Thanks for letting me know how much you’ve enjoyed the Invisible Fiends series, and well done on spreading the word!

    Unfortunately that’s it for Kyle’s adventures for the moment. I may be tempted to write some more someday, but for now his nightmare is over. I’ve got lots of other books on their way, though, so hopefully you’ll enjoy those, too.


  • I am getting the first book in two days when you come to my mates school she might get it signed if shes lucky 🙂


  • Hello, Barry!
    I really love your ‘Invisible Fiends’ series!
    I ordered ‘The Darkest Corners’ the other day after begging my mum!
    I think ‘The Beast’ is the best (just my opinion), but I have a feeling the next will be amazing!
    Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, PLEASE make some more books to the ‘Invisible Fiends’ series!
    I think you’re such a good writer! I love the way you wrote in 1st person throughout the series!
    I hope you read this so, so, so much!

    Lauren!!!! 😀

  • In the blurb, you kind of give away a clue about a certain character (don’t want to give any spoilers) and I honestly CRIED FOR DAYS after reading the ending XD but I have a question. In order to ask that question, I need to mention names and stuff. Is there any way for me to ask you without giving anything away to anyone else? <3

    1. Aww! Sorry I made you cry (I’m not really).

      Good thinking on the no-spoiler thing. Drop me an email through the contact me bit above and I’ll reply.

  • Dear Barry, I really do not know how you write your amazing books. They have everything I really appreciate In books. If there is one series I would have never have wanted to end , it would be the invisible fiends . I really thought you’d finished up with the mystery of Joseph and I can just say here and now I really thought that epilogue ,being an epilogue lover, was the best I have ever read . I was the first one to actually start the invisible fiends trend in my area and there is nothing better to be known as than “the guy who introduced that amazing book series.” This was also the best finale that I have ever read with its action , drama and even large tears for me.
    Regards , your no.1 fan (probaly) Thomas
