Barry J. Northern was the host and editor of the late Cast Macabre horror fiction podcast who went on to found Cast of Wonders after seeing a gap in the market for great short audio YA fiction. He has a story published on Pseudopod, and tries to write when he isn't debugging code or designing logos in his garden studio in Bournemouth, England.
Barry hasn’t been as active in the podcasting and fiction world as he used to be. He still works behind the scenes at Cast of Wonders providing the occasional piece of artwork, which he started in 2011 with Graeme Dunlop. He still does the occasional narration for EA and other shows, such as The Drabblecast and StarShip Sofa.
