Barry branched out from his broadcasting and production work to study astrology in 1991, which lead to an ongoing exploration of the mysteries of life and what lies beyond. Since then he has also developed his abilities as a psychic intuitive and a medium, which ultimately led to the writing of “Afterlife”.
As a writer he has been published widely and has also scripted documentary films, commercials and corporate presentations. He also co-wrote the screenplay for two feature films with his son Matthew. Afterlife marks his debut as an author, which soon lead to writing No Goodbyes (2013) and the soon to be released The Joy of Living (2017 Rockpool Publishing).
