Barbara G.Tarn

Biography

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.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Well, I grew up on Planet Earth, moving around the continent called Europe for the first 13 years of my life, then got stuck in that boot-shaped peninsula, since that's where I was born. But I've always felt international - or rootless.

Since I've always felt different, my characters are almost always outsiders and outcasts (sometimes outlaws) - that's how I've felt for most of my life.

I started writing when I came back to my hometown - I hated everything around me and started retreating in my own worlds. And I haven't really come back since.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Okay, I'm a very prolific author, so anyone asking me "how is your book doing/coming along" will get a blank stare from me. I don't remember what book I was talking about with that person, so whoever that is, s/he should remind me which one...

Just check what's new at the bottom of this page, haha! Or follow my blog...
