About

Thanks for stopping by! I’m Barrington. In addition to this blog, I write speculative fiction that explores how people respond when their world — or their place in it — changes.

My work has been optioned and won prizes like Amazon Studios’ Best Screenplay Award, Screencraft’s Cinematic Short Story Competition Grand Prize, and DreamAgo’s Pen & Pellicule Writing Fellowship. I’ve published fiction in literary journals like Sycamore Review, Colorado Review, The Drum and Women of Horror, Volume 3 and I co-wrote for an upcoming episode of Creepshow on AMC’s Shudder Network.

Before I was a writer,  I worked in production for theatre, large-scale events, and film — spending many hours on sound stages and sets. I’ve also worked as a gift-wrapper, piano accompanist, stage manager and teacher, studied massage at a temple in Thailand, worked with a dancing cow mascot in Costa Rica, written a food guide for Western Australia and survived cancer…twice. It’s a life that informs my writing.
