About this author

Barry Simiana lives = for now - on the North Coast of NSW Australia with his wife and four children.

Barry's first serious publication was 2007 in the anthology "NEXT STOP HOLLYWOOD: Short Stories Bound for the Screen" published by St Martins Griffin.

Next publication was the long awaited "A TOUCH of EVIL" in 2011, published by Nitewriter Media. Nine short stories and novellas, all exploring answers to the eternal question 'What if ...?' The long road to developing a television show based on these stories and others has been undertaken.

Odd Thomas: You Are Destined To Be Together ForeverOdd Thomas: You Are Destined To Be Together Forever by Dean Koontz

Not bad. Turned on to it by a person at work, i found it a little hard to start, but by the end I was interested enough to get the larger trilogy this is attached to. Worth the work before you start the larger story.
