ain't such a bad guy."
Barker was born in west Texas in 1966 and was raised with music and books and not much else.
For a time, his
mother was a bookkeeper at a number of clubs (dives all but lovingly so) and there was always music playing.
, sitting in front of his
mother's bookshelves, dipping into and out of science fiction, humor, horror, crime, there was also music.
After high school, Barker
moved north to Lubbock and graduated, eventually, from Texas Tech University
with a Bachelor's in Broadcast Journalism.
He worked as a journalist off and on for a few years before moving to Denver with his then-wife, LuAnn.
After a decade there, he moved to north-central Illinois and began working at the Bureau County Sheriff's Office, where he still is today.
He's a patrol sergeant and an investigator for the Illinois Attorney General's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
is the author of more than 200 short stories, as well as the Barefield trilogy - 2000 Miles to Open Road, Exit Blood, Death is Not Forever - published by Down & Out Books
