barflypoet & author of dark fiction


Hey guys! I’d like to say thank you to all who have taken time to not only read but listen to the prose & poetry I have crafted & shared to this point as the barflypoet.


You know, there’s writing words to describe a picture you see with your eyes. Then there’s pouring out with tangibility what you feel in your heart. I do my best striving for the latter. It may not work well for those seeking simplified gratification, but waders don’t belong in my ocean. So I truly appreciate you risking deeper waters along with me!


I’m often faced with a quandary. As a writer, I want to be read, felt & noticed. But at the same time, I don’t enjoy shining a light on myself. That said, I’m going to start nudging outside my comfort zone.


So here’s my first step: I’d like to introduce you to my Etsy shop! Here you’ll find signed copies of my books (which I can easily personalize) as well as an initial selection of older poems that I have handwritten on parchment paper.


Have you read something of mine recently that resonates & you’d like for your own? Then reach out & I can gladly discuss getting it to you!


My Etsy shop can be found at: 


Again, thank you for your support. I am grateful for the truly special and cool people I’ve met on this journey!
