Duane Barton

Hello, my name is Duane Barton. I have been writing short horror stories for as long as I can remember. After I was in high school, I began to write poetry. My true writing passions are short horror stories and dark poetry.
I am happily married to the love of my life. Her name is Cindy. We met back in 1993 and I am still head over heels in love with her. On December 11, 2008 she gave birth to our first child. Our son named Gabriel Thorn Barton. It took us quite a few years to have a child, but it was definitely worth the wait. He is our world! We love him so much!!
For my day job I am employed at the Missouri University of Science & Technology in Rolla, Missouri. My wife also works here on campus. I am the Chief Clerk in the Civil, Architectural & Environmental Engineering Department. While I am very thankful for my job, my true career goal/dream would be to financially be able to be a writer full time. If I could make an honest living doing that; that would be a dream come true.
