The Authors

Mark Tarrant

Mark Tarrant is a creative powerhouse who knew he wanted to write and create from his first encounter with Star Wars.

Born in Lansing, Michigan, and growing up in Massachusetts, Tarrant grew up loving books about monsters and the unknown.

A big fan of comics − especially those of Robert E. Howard’s Conan character − his reading eventually included the master of horror, Stephen King. His storytelling is also influenced by his passion for Western movies, particularly The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.

His artistic talents have received recognition in The Boston Globe, USA Today, The Valley Advocate, The Republican, The Herald and The Buzz.

Mark strives to continue to create unique characters and situations for entertainment whether it be in film, comics, books or short stories. His favorite two words are “What if…” or those who know him… “dinner time..”

Tarrant’s personal life is a sharp contrast to the fantasy world that captivates his readers. He lives in New Mexico, loves history, especially the wild west, pop culture, and gets especially excited during NFL season. Tarrant has recently discovered another creative passion: parenting his daughter. Being a father has given him another platform for storytelling.
