Barry Nugent wrote his first story at the young age of 11, after seeing Raiders of the Lost Ark, and never looked back. His first novel ‘Paladin’ was published in 1999. In 2004 he self published his next story Unseen Shadows: Fallen Heroes, the first in a trilogy of pulp adventure novels. This is paved the way for Barry to form Unseen Shadows Ltd, a company dedicated to expanding the world created in Fallen Heroes through comics, audio and prose. In his spare time Barry is one of the co-founders of the Geek Syndicate website/podcast which focuses on all aspects of pop culture.
