Crestview author explores biblical end in new book

Although his latest page-turner might interest Christians, its theme is a departure from prior creations.

"A Demon in Plain Sight" — his first book, released in 2011 — follows a charismatic wealthy man with the split personality of a serial killer.

Barnhill's passion for writing goes back to creating comic books at age 12.

"Most of my teachers said I should be a writer," Barnhill said.

However, that occupation came later in life.

Barnhill turned to construction work, framing houses to make his living, before 2010's Deepwater Horizon oil spill threatened his livelihood.

"I did really well until the oil spill ... I had to close up shop," Barnhill said, adding the time off allowed him to write.
