Barry Cole

I was born in Yorkshire but spent much of my life in Bedfordshire. I served as a regular soldier for eleven years and after leaving the army I began contributing stories and articles to two Native American monthly magazines. Having caught the writing bug, and with an interest in films, I attended the London Screenwriters Workshop for two years. Following this I began writing feature length screenplays in my spare time. After several frustrating years of hammering on producers doors I finally decided to devote my time to adapting my screenplays into books which I am now in the process of doing. Shingas and The Time Bandit are my first two books and I am currently working on a second children's book which I hope to self publish in early 2017.
