Ron Tarrant was born in Digby, Nova Scotia and grew up in the nearby village of Bear River. Always a dreamer and seeker of adventure, after the divorce of his parents, he wanted to see what life was like "out there" in the world. At age fourteen, he convinced his mother he'd have more opportunities living with his father in Halifax.
It was in Halifax he started his career as a musician, playing bass in the house band at the Lobster Trap Cabaret, a local strip club. Music carried him west to Calgary where he played in numerous bands.
Meanwhile, he'd also been bitten by the acting bug. From high school plays and summer theatre at King's College in Halifax and finally to commercials, television and film in Calgary and Vancouver, he brought a rich life experience to roles, impressing both audiences and critics alike.
While onstage, Ron was drawn to writing, first stage-plays, then screenplays and novels. Graduated from Emily Carr University in Vancouver and Algonquin in Ottawa, he has seen the publication of two novels (Hiding from Eddie and Reality Check) as well as the production of three stage plays (The Return of Mr. Hand, Haven of Hope, and Crisscross the Fence) and a screenplay (Time Runner starring Mark Hamill and Rae Dawn Chong).
Ron currently lives in Kanata, Ontario with his wife, Elise and a cat named Suzie.
