Hi, my name’s Barry O’Leary and I’m an author.

There, I said it.

It can be hard to admit that I’m an author some days, but today is a good day, so telling the world about my passion feels great. 

They say you are what you eat. Well, I say you are what you read. Since the majority of what I read is funny, apart from the occasional horror romance or superhero comic, I write humorous contemporary fiction. I prefer to write funny novels because that’s how my brain works.

I also have a travel autobiography book about when I was young, free and foolish, and travelled the world attempting to teaching English as a foreign language to various students in far off lands. 

On my website you’ll find links to my books (click on the link up there which says Books). Once you click on the links and you’ll be taken to another page that will ask you to part with some cash to be entertained (he says) for up to 5/6 hours, depending on the book length and how quick you read, or how much you fancy skipping through (it’s okay, I skip through people’s novels too).

If you find yourself actually interested in my words, or even chuckling away to what happens to my characters, then the best way is to follow me is by signing up to my newsletter.

I do love living here – he says, trying to convince himself – but only after a long battle to feel settled. To be fair, it’s only since becoming a father to two Spanish kids that Seville feels like home. Before that, I tried every opportunity to escape, but a certain senorita kept me here with her mysterious ways – that and her excellent cooking skills.
