About NJ Barker

NJ Barker first started writing books when he was eight, but he took his time before completing his first thriller some forty years later after retiring to concentrate full time on writing.  

He is a graduate of the Faber Academy and is drawn to stories involving groups of people discovering they are trapped and forced to play within the rules or face the consequences. 

The opening of his debut thriller, The Honesty Index, was long-listed by Jericho Writers in their Friday Night Live competition.

NJ Barker is editing books two and three, and is working hard on writing more standalone thrillers, as well as book two of the Kennedy Logan Thrillers series.

NJ Barker is represented by Jo Bell at Bell Lomax Moreton Ltd.

He lives in Kent together with his wife, son and their two cocker spaniels.
