Sulari Gentill

"...tell outrageous...she just makes things up..."

Sulari Gentill is the author of the Rowland Sinclair Mysteries.

Biography Edit

She was born in Ski Lanka, but moved to and lived in Africa before coming to Brisbane in 1972 when she was six, and the White Australia Policy had come to an end. She originally set out to study astro-physics at ANU, ended up graduating in law, only to abandon the career for writing, (after learning to preg test cows). "When the mood takes her shes paints, although she maintains that she only does so well enough to know that she should write."

"She grows French black truffles on her farm in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains of NSW, which she shares with her young family and several animals.

For most of September 2015, Sulari took up residence at the reinvigorated Gorman Arts Centre, Canberra, and working at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, as she has just accepted the position Eminent Writer-in-Residence as offered to her by the ACT Writers' Centre."
