My name is David-Matthew Barnes. I'm an author, movie reviewer, 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. I was recently interviewed by the wonderful Gail Hulnick as a guest on The Brainwave Podcast. This is my most in-depth interview to date.
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.
All of my stage plays published by Blue Dasher Press can be produced royalty-free. There is never a cost to produce one of my scripts published by them. I believe theatre is for everyone. I invite you to visit their online digital store, where you can purchase printable PDF's of most of my stage plays at a pay-what-you-want rate.
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 six screenplays that have been produced. My IMDb page is a great resource for information about my film and television projects.
My most recent book is the new edition of my young adult novel Swimming to Chicago.
If you love films, I write movie reviews. Visit Filtinsel for more information.
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.
Please send all professional inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of my creative team will be happy to help you.
Again, thank you for being here. As always, thank you for your support!🖤
