Sulari Gentill describes herself in the following way: 'I'm Australian. I was born in Sri Lanka, learned to speak English in Zambia and grew up in Brisbane. I went to University to study Astrophysics, graduated in Law and after years of corporate contracts, realized I just wanted to tell stories.'
Gentill's literary achievements include being commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers' 2008 Jim Hamilton Award, longlisted for the Hachette/QLD Writers' Centre Australian Manuscript Development Program for fiction writers, and shortlisted for the 2008 New Holland Publishers and NSW Writers Centre Genre Fiction Award. She has also been awarded a Varuna Fellowship.
