Born in Alaska, Barron raised huskies and worked in the construction and fishing industries for much of his youth. He moved to the Pacific Northwest during the mid-1990s and dedicated himself to writing. His debut collection, The Imago Sequence, was published in 2007, followed by three more collections and a pair of novels. A multiple Locus, World Fantasy, and Bram Stoker award nominee, he is also a three-time winner of the Shirley Jackson award.
Barron’s stories often contain elements of literary crime, horror, and noir. Cormac McCarthy, Robert B. Parker, Angela Carter, and Martin Cruz Smith are among his favorite authors and significant literary influences.
Currently, Barron lives in the Rondout Valley and is at work on tales about the evil that men do.
