About Cory Barclay

As far back as he can remember, Cory Barclay has always loved the "big picture" questions. How much knowledge did humanity lose when the Library of Alexandria was burned down? Why has the concept of Heaven remained intact, in one form or another, throughout most of human history and how has it impacted life on Earth? And even before that, when he first began writing stories in grade school, he's been fascinated with histories and mysteries. Whether Norse mythology, the Dark Ages, or the conquests of great leaders, Cory's been that kid who wants to know what's shaped our world and write about it. Especially the great unsolved mysteries. So Devil in the Countryside was a natural for him. Born and raised in San Diego, he graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz, where he studied Creative Writing and Modern Literary Studies. He's also a songwriter and guitarist, and - no surprise - many of his songs explore the same topics he writes about - the great mysteries of our crazy world. Devil in the Countryside is his second novel and he's hard at work on its sequel.
