SFF author David Barnett is the latest writer to join the John Jarrold Literary Agency.
He 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 in the UK earlier this year by Immanion Press. He is presently finishing his new novel, Angelglass.
He is also the lead singer with charismatic pop combo Choppersquad, who
remain available for all festivals and functions.
David lives in West Yorkshire with his wife Claire, their young children Charlie and Alice, and two cats, Kali and Shiva.
'Angel Glass is really special,' said John Jarrold. 'Set in Prague in both the present day and 1584, it mixes aspects of the thriller, literary detective novel and SF. Remarkable. Welcome to the agency, David!'
