Meet the Author

David Tarrant is an enterprise reporter at The Dallas Morning News. He started at The News in 1984 as a suburban reporter. In 1986, he wrote a series on the hungry and homeless in Dallas that won the Heywood Broun award. From 1988 to 1992, he worked at Stars & Stripes in Europe and covered the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Persian Gulf War. He returned to The News in 1993 to write profiles, narratives and enterprise stories. In 2003, he wrote a four-part series chronicling the journey of four Dallas-area Marine recruits through boot camp, which won a Texas Associated Press Managing Editors award. He won another Texas APME in 2008 for a three-part series on the journey of the wife of an Air Force pilot who’d been missing since the Vietnam War. His continuing series, called “Private Battles,” chronicles the struggles of military families after 10 years of war. A native of Pittsburgh, Pa., and a graduate of Holy Cross College in Worcester, Mass., Dave lives in Arlington, Texas, with his wife, Sharon, their two teenage children and Sandy, their beloved dog.
