My pen name is Barbara G.Tarn, a.k.a. Barb, and I'm a writer, sometimes an artist, mostly a world-creator and story-teller of fantasy worlds.
I intend to publish my many stories set on my fictional world of Silvery Earth from 2011 on, starting with the shorter and continuing with the novels, so check back soon!
The graphic novels are available in print and for download (PDF only, unfortunately graphic novels don't come out very well as e-books - yet) - check my blog for info.

Disclosure: I edited this book.
Synopsis: The struggle between Humans and Genn gets vicious.
Orphaned by Human bandits, adopted by Genn, seeking revenge and becoming a warrior under a not-so-accomodating Emperor. Especially if you refuse to serve him to side with the Genn.
Welcome to Silvery Earth. Water beings, winged people, shape-shifting dragons and elf-like beings mingle with humans throughout the history of this world.
My Thoughts: When I edited this, I had only just recently read my first book in the Silvery Earth series of books, Jessamine, and like in that case, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. While not super-long - it could be considered a long novella, or short novel - the book is long enough to provide plenty of character development and action. The action revolves around Kurt, a human who was rescued by a Genn family after his own family was murdered in an attack on their caravan. We first meet him when he's a young teen and follow his exploits as he becomes a powerful warrior, fighting with the Genn against the discrimination against their people. The world is well developed and interesting, and any fantasy fan will find it a satisfying read. Definitely check it out.
