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.

To mark the launch of my latest novel -

‘THE ILL-STARRED EXILE OF JOHN SMITH’ - I am offering brand new editions of all my Detective Inspector Stone Supernatural Crime books at a massive

discount of 25% - but only if

you purchase them through where they are

available NOW.
