Hi, I’m Barry Durham; welcome to my website.

I was a writer and journalist for more than 40 years, a university lecturer for seven, and have had an interest in The Occult for more than 50.

As I am ‘retired’ now, I write full time.

The stories of The Pendle Witches have fascinated me since I was a teenager - which is why I felt I had to bring their ‘descendents’ into my writing.

I also love Lancashire and my birth town of Manchester where I grew up, so again, they feature in my stories - plus the area in which I live now, the lovely village of Chipping and its wonderful surrounding countryside.

The latest Detective Inspector Stone Supernatural Crime novel - THE PORTAL - is out NOW in paperback and Kindle versions.

Paperback price £13 (with 25% off if bought through so that’s £9.75)

Kindle version (through Amazon) is £3
