David Barnett

UK flag (1970 - )

David  was born in Wigan in 1970. He is an award-winning journalist and has worked in newspapers in the North of England since 1989 as a reporter, a specialist correspondent, a newseditor, a columnist and a features editor. 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.

 He is the lead singer with charismatic pop combo Chopper squad, who remain available for all festivals and functions. David lives in West Yorkshire with his wife Claire, their young Charlie and Alice, and two cats, Kali and Shiva. Hinterland is his first novel. He also has a short story entitled "Go" appearing in the forthcoming Redbeck Press anthology You Are Here, edited by Bill Broady.
