Harry T. Barnes is the author of two historical fiction books, She Called Him Jim and The Barnes Bridge, about his grandparent’s tragic lives in early 1900s. The stories take place in Baltimore City and the Appalachian Mountains of Western Maryland.

Barnes also published a collection of short fiction stories titled “Condo Capers,” inspired by events during his winter retreats to a Florida condominium community. Other short stories and poems have been published in anthologies including, Stories and Sketches from a Small Village, by Illume Writers and Artists, Gilbertsville, New York, and Inklings, an annual publication of the Suncoast Writers Guild Inc., Englewood, Florida. Barnes’s books and these anthologies are available online at Amazon.com.

When asked how he became a writer, Harry replied, “It seems I was predestined to become a writer as well as a teacher-naturalist and wilderness guide. My yearning for untrammeled trails and wild rivers was infused in me by my father. The love of language, I imbibed from my mother. My propensity for imagination and writing came from my paternal grandfather’s impassioned storytelling.

Following a career as environmental education center director and licensed wilderness guide, Mr. Barnes and his wife, Muffy, spend their summers on an old dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains of New York and winters on the Gulf coast of Southwest Florida.

Paintings that incorporate personal narrative with landscape and figurative painting. Interactions between people in public spaces – the way that people carve out personal space in crowded places, and the use of technological devices as agents of communication and separation.

Tracy Sheldon
Graphite, pen, & acrylic illustrations explore the therapeutic principals of art and nature. “It is my hope that my work can inspire others to connect with all of creation and perhaps find/see themselves in the process.”

Lillie Anderson
