Chemical Engineer Wins Prestigious Book Award

Robert Barry Author of "The Truth - The Biggest Cover-Up In History"

Robert Barry from Kilkenny in Ireland has been announced as the winner of the Page Turner Awards eBook Non-Fiction Award for his eBook, The Truth - The Biggest Cover-Up in History.

Robert is a chemical engineer and European patent attorney who worked in the UK for fifteen years before returning home to Kilkenny.

Robert entered the Page Turner Awards, where published and unpublished fiction and non-fiction writers of all genres can enter their writing to get discovered by high-profile judges from the literary world.

The Truth - The Biggest Cover-Up in History is about the human race having been barred from God’s kingdom required a hero. Enter the Christ, the promised one, whose purpose was to create the Holy Grail, a gate allowing for our return to heaven.

Whilst Robert was working and living in London, he found and used the Holy Grail, the most sought-after artefact of the last two millennia, and he wrote The Truth – The Biggest Cover-Up in History based on his experience.

Robert witnessed what he refers to as the Knowledge Based System, which Jesus referred to as his Father’s Kingdom – ‘This is Eternal Life, to know you the one true God.’ (John 17:3). Robert witnessed this system after having invoked the power of the Grail using the instructions Jesus gave to us in the prayer, the Our Father.

Although raised a Catholic, Robert does not have any deeply held religious beliefs. He does not endorse any religion, and he is not a Grail enthusiast. He does not have any experience or formal education in these areas, nor does he have any interest in such things.

Robert confesses that after having had this experience he did not wish to write the book but that in the end, the book wrote itself.

Robert said, “I believe entering book competitions is a must for all authors, not only promote your work but give you important feedback on your book and how to progress as a writer. I am delighted and honoured to have won this award. I would like to thank the Page Turner Awards for all their hard work in running such an exciting awards program. Winning isn’t something that happens suddenly, it requires time, dedication, and editing!”
