Kelly Barker

Kelly Barker was born in Oxford and moved to Witney ten years ago for work. She has been a barber since 2002, and loves her job. The protagonist of her debut novel, The Inner Temple, is also a barber. She has had many authors in her chair over the years, and has been inspired by all of them.

Kelly says, "Daydreaming has always fascinated me. Why do we do it? Where do they come from and why do we (some more than others) choose to live in a world we have created? Sleep deprivation also fascinates me. Experiencing both made me realise that the two were connected. It was the nightmares of real life that kept me awake at night, forcing me into the world of daydreams.

I knew I needed help, but I didn't want it. I wasn't ready to sacrifice the world I had built in my mind. Being in therapy has taught me to balance them both. I was advised, by my therapist, to write about my nightmares and daydreams. My book is a combination of what keeps me awake at night and the world I choose to live in."
