About

John Barrie’s writing focuses on people at the fringes of society–the homeless, the incarcerated, the marginalized–everyone on the outside of capitalism’s gated fences, looking in. While his emphasis is short fiction, a true crime piece about Idaho Death Row inmate Erick Hall was the feature story in the September 23rd, 2020 issue of the Boise Weekly.

When he isn’t writing, John works at Boise State University in the Facilities department, where he has been for sixteen years.
