My Bigfoot Life – Daniel Barnett

Saturday 10th February 2024

We are so excited to be able to announce the latest book from CFZ press ‘My Bigfoot Life’ by Daniel Lee Barnett. Now available to buy at the link below, please go and grab your copy and read all about Daniel and how his bigfoot journey started!

Daniel Barnett is a remarkable young man. At the age of 14, he has decided to take on the current populist belief in Bigfoot, both in the United States and, more importantly, in the United Kingdom. People have been claiming that there is a British Bigfoot for many years. There is certainly a recurrent Fortean phenomenon which appears to be a humanoid giant. Our ancestors called them woodwoses. 

I know that these things exist. I have seen one. In January 2003 an immensely tall  figure ran between two marked trees in Bowen Lake Forest, in Northumberland. I was one of five people that saw it. What exactly it is, I still don’t know.

Daniel has taken it upon himself to recruit a team of like-minded individuals, and to utilise modern technology and the scientific method to investigate these, the most intangible examples of modern cryptozoology. Whether he will succeed, none of us know, but he has already garnered some remarkable results.

This is his story, and it is also the story of his remarkable family, who have encouraged him every step of the way. What is going to happen next? I have no idea, but I can’t wait to find out.

Hi! My name is Guinevere (or Guin for short) and I am Exeter, Devon born and bred. I'm a single mum to two little monkeys called Muhammed (Momo) and Ibrahim (Ibby) and hope to get them as fascinated in the cryptozoology world as I am and was as a young girl. It all started for me with my dads Arthur C Clarke book about crystal skulls and my mums books on the paranormal, fairies and witches. I've grown up surrounded by the wonder of what 'could' be out there and want my two boys to be just as curious and excited about it.
