“S.Tarr is a poetic fighter, a philosophical and spiritual igniter, a fantasy, adventure and sci-fi writer. A knight-errant on a quest to find beauty and wonder, love and purpose, vitality and rest. A wandering pilgrim in search of the ultimate, the essence of life and the Revealer of All, the very best.”
Sean Anthony Tarr (born October 28, 1981) writes under the name S.Tarr, which to him symbolises a romantic view of his calling, and who happens to be me. Having found a greater meaning to my name and to my voice, that of a celestial being that endowed with inherent greatness, I set off on my quest to uncover this greatness and to express my experiences of life, both in written word and in melodic sound.
I hail from the greater Cape Town area, South Africa, and I am a writer in every sense of the word. I wrote these very words that you are reading right now.
Apart from these words I also write very short stories, known as poems, and longer stories, known as novels, and sometimes venture around in the middle and just writes short stories.
During the day I am a programmer, writing code and building interfaces for websites, and at night I composes electronic music under numerous virtual identities, sir nightowl, The X-Structure and, more recently, Soultrek, to name a few.
My first series of books, Thoughts Discovered, is currently in the making, with the fourth volume, The Wonder of It All, published in October 2014. Love, Adventure and Other Noble Quests, the first volume in this five volume series, was published in October 2013.
Thoughts Discovered is a collection of inspirational, imaginative and thought-provoking writing, written in a distinct poetic style, spanning across various themes such as love and adventure, wisdom and worldview, beauty and wonder. The poems were all written from 2006 up until the publication of the final volume in 2014 and were inspired by everyday observations, mystical musings and reflections on the wonder of life.
I aim to publish the final volume of the series by the end of 2014 and will then work on publishing a single book containing all of the volumes, as I had initially planned to do.
My other goals for the near future are to finish the many novels and short stories that I have been writing for the last few years, starting with my first Nanowrimo novel, All Roads Lead To Roam, a dystopian sci-fi adventure fantasy, and the follow up, this year’s Nanowrimo novel, Saga of South, a medieval fantasy. These books form part of trilogy with the last novel in the series still untitled but not unknown.
