Joseph Ferri

Joseph Ferri is a nom de plume (of the nom de guerre Captain Barbelo), and a visual artist by profession; Joe travelled extensively throughout Europe and the Far East where he studied Eastern philosophies and martial arts with leading masters.

Since living in the West of Ireland, he blended his knowledge of the wider world with Irish mythology and also finally found time to write. Barbelo’s Blood is the first in a series of novels that weave innovative, thought-provoking concepts with exciting stories and hard-hitting action.


Joe is currently working on the next novel in the series from an earlier period of Captain Barbelo’s life which is set in post-war Palestine.


Absolutely all or none of the above may, or may not be true.

“Never judge the book by its cover.”
