Bara Cailín 4: 24 ‘An ant in your lunchbox?’

When we are confronted by an insect, our natural reaction is to use our hands to wipe and swipe and flick and push away and squash the thing annoying you. Or hit it with a rolled-up newspaper. At the very least we would wave something in a bid to get the insect to go and bother someone else.

A single fly, perhaps?

A cloud of midges?

An ant in your lunchbox?

A wasp attracted to your fizzy drink?

A descending ocean of cockroaches?



Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at You can also find him on Twitter @BarnabyFTaylor.

  1. Would you believe I think I may have discovered what is happening!! I copied your twitter handle and went over to twitter to look you up, there are two accounts with your twitter handle, one is a guy with a guitar and the other isn’t. I can follow the one who doesn’t have a guitar but the other is blocked. So are you the one with the guitar singing or the other one. both accounts have the exact same twitter handle.


  2. that is so weird! because when I tweet it out it asks if I want to follow @BarnabyTaylor, But that barnaby taylor has a guitar and is a singer. The other is just a guy. either way, neither of those are yours. I am following you now. That is so weird! I hope you have a wonderful day today~
