Deric Barry's Books of adventure - travel
Deric is a retired engineer who spent most of his working life aboard ships, barges and rigs in the oil exploration industry. He served his National Service in the Royal Navy and afterwards joined the Merchant Navy. His experience landed him a job in the North Sea working for a Hydrographic Survey Company on Survey Ships, conducting seabed surveys for oil rig locations and pipeline systems. He travelled worldwide working on underwater electronic equipment as well as surface and underwater navigation systems.
His experiences in the many countries he visited and the different people he worked with gave him an excellent grounding in very many different cultures and lifestyles.
‘White Slaves’ is one of the four adventure books he’s written. The others being ‘The National Heroes,’ a story of National Servicemen in the Royal Navy during the Suez Crisis, ‘Innocent on the Run,’ the fast moving tale of a young lad who misses his ship in an American port and is stranded, going on the run as an illegal immigrant, and ‘Hislop’s Nigerian Nightmare,’ a story of an overweight, cowardly private detective who is captured for ransom while working in Nigeria for H.M. Revenue and Customs.
All of Deric's books are now available on Amazon Kindle.

He has also written a book of Welsh Humour entitled, ‘Mayhem in the Valleys,’ a tale of three Welsh geriatric delinquents who cause havoc in their Valleys’ town.
