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.
I also 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).
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.
Hop over to the News section for current and past updates on all of my projects.
I've been very fortunate to write five screenplays that have been produced. You can read about my unproduced scripts that are currently available at Film Freeway.
My IMDb page is also another great resource for information about my film and television projects.
To date, I've written more than sixty stage plays. You can read about these scripts in the Plays section (and where to find and/or purchase them).
In addition to Kindle Unlimited editions, most of my stage plays are available to download in printable PDF's at my digital PayHip 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.
To learn more about my novels and short stories, the Fiction section includes information about them.
Similarly, the Poetry section is devoted to my poems and my published collections of poetry.
My most recent novel is Marijuana Mermaid.
