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'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.
Each month, Blue Dasher Press produces a virtual reading of one of my stage plays (or a collection of my short plays). These readings are streamed as a YouTube premiere event. If you are interested in audition information, please visit the Auditions page.
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 most recent novel is The Everlasting Gift.
The Links page is a great list of writing resources, organizations I love and support, and links to the individual webpages of the members of my collective creative team. 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.
