SR Silcox grew up in small-town Australia. A child of the 80s and a teen of the 90s, it was a multi-coloured, fun-filled time of hypercolour T-shirts, Slip’n’Slides, outrageously teased fringes, MC Hammer and Dunlop Volleys. She played cricket in the summer and soccer in the winter, all while wearing shorts and T-shirts with a cap glued firmly to her head.
She loves team sports, barracks for the underdog, and believes that everyone makes the right choices given the right set of circumstances. Most of all she believes that re-making movies from the 1980s should be made illegal.
A lesbian herself, she’s passionate about the importance of diversity in fiction and the media, especially for LGBT+ teens.
A voracious and eclectic reader, among her favourite authors are JK Rowling, John Green, Hugh Howey , and Malinda Lo.
A former accountant, SR Silcox left her job in 2012 to write full time. She lives in sunny Queensland, Australia with her partner and two dogs, and writes young adult fiction with lesbian main characters.
Facebook – This is where I spend most of my time so if you want to know more about me and the daily trials and tribulations of being an author, facebook’s your best bet. You can send me a friend request (please let me know in the little message thingy that you like my books or something like that so I know why. I’m curious like that!) or you can just follow my posts by clicking the follow link on my profile page.
Amazon Profile – this is where you can buy my books, and they also have a nifty little ‘follow the author’ feature where you can stay informed on new releases.
Twitter – I use this primarily to get news about publishing, writing and sports, so I don’t post much on there myself. I mainly retweet stuff I like or think is funny.
I’m also on instagram as srsilcox. I post pics of my dogs as well as the places I live and write. This is also linked to my facebook and twitter.
