I can't wait to read this. Barry is my hero.

And his hair is so dreamy.

Hey man, I can get this kind of abuse at home!

Just don't read David's copy. The sex scene pages might be... ah, never mind.

Barry, you really don't want to know the ritual David goes through for his "Me Time" in the bathroom when excited.

I only know because of his drunken phone calls


Looking forward to both the John Rain film and Fault Line. I hate wait!


Guyot! How could you forget Barry's lovely teeth?

Oh, yeah, the book...I'm pretty excited about that!

Alan Premel

Barry, So glad to hear you've made it out of CIA alive the same as me. I'm still a bit bruised and beaten up. It's been great talking with you, catching up and learning that you've gone onto writing. That's awesome. I'll have to check out your website. Nothing but proud for you. From one virginia farm boy to the other, Congrats!
