Hi, I'm Barry Bonnell, and I hope you'll share an adventure with me.  My dream is to become a writer, and my first urban fantasy, Enchanted Notions (book one of the Enchanted series) is published! Buy the paperback or eBook at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.  Enchanted Notions is also available at Enchanted Moments, the wonderful little store at 128 Main Street in Milford, Ohio, that is the setting for the book.  Visit there and buy the book from the characters in its pages!

It's exciting to be moving forward and I want you to come along with me as we progress through the fascinating world of writing and publishing.  I'll update progress through my Barryblog page, and hope readers will respond with impressions and helpful suggestions.

This site is intended to bring readers with me on my journey and will provide a short synopsis of each of my writing projects, a few samples, some background about my life, and the best way to contact me for more information.

My personal memoir Steel Ribbons is also complete.  I'm seeking an agent for this one and am hopeful about having my work represented.    Thanks for visiting.  So far I'm having a blast.

Yes, I was a baseball player, and many thanks to you fans who stumbled in looking for that guy.

Below are a couple of my favorite quotes; also included in my baseball how-to book, Why Do Hitters Step in the Bucket?

"That's baseball, and it's my game. Y' know, you take your worries to the game, and you leave 'em there. You yell like crazy for your guys. It's good for your lungs, gives you a lift, and nobody calls the cops.

Pretty girls, lots of 'em"
--Humphrey Bogart

"I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game. It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism. Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set. Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us"
--Walt Whitman
