Hello. Thank you for stopping by. I'm happy you're here.

My name is David-Matthew Barnes. I'm an author, playwright, poet, and screenwriter. I write in multiple genres, primarily young adult, romance, thriller, and horror. 

If you'd like to learn more about me and my life, the About section offers more details. 

If you're looking for something particular I've written, please visit the Library section. This is a comprehensive list of my published and produced titles. If it's available, it's listed there. 

To date, I've written seventy stage plays. Information about where to find and/or purchase them is available in the Plays section. Most of my stage plays are available to download in printable PDF's at my digital store

If you're an actor, I encourage you to check out the Monologues section, especially if you're looking for a contemporary audition piece. 

Here you can watch actors from around the world performing monologues from my stage plays. 

I recommend checking out my Amazon Author Page. There you'll find a list of all of my titles available via Amazon (including lots of Kindle Unlimited titles to choose from).

I've been very fortunate to write five screenplays that have been produced. My IMDb page is a great resource for information about my film and television projects.

The Poetry section is devoted to my published collections of poetry. 

To learn more about my novels and short stories, the Fiction section includes information about them.

My novels are published by Blue Dasher Press and Cayélle Publishing

There, you will also find links to articles, reviews, interviews, podcasts, and radio shows related to my work, including an in-depth interview I did with Playwright's Spotlight

If you would like to connect with me beyond this website, you can do so via my Linktree. I love to connect with readers and fellow writers on social media.
