Welcome!

My name is S.C. Farrow.  I love to write, but haven't always been a writer. In the past, I've had some pretty wacky jobs like lampshade maker, cigarette girl, and vocalist.

 

I've also done some wacky things like spending a week in a Swiss castle with the Hugh Jackman of Cuba, climbing inside the Great Pyramid of Egypt, climbing to the top of the Sidney Music Bowl, and getting arrested for possession of a prohibited substance (whoops!).

I’ve always been creative, which is both a blessing and a curse, let me tell you! Through the years, I’ve been fortunate to express my creativity in a variety of ways, through music, fine art, and even dance. However, it’s writing where I find my greatest joy.

I’m fascinated by myriad topics and like to use beautiful words and flawed and broken characters to challenge the status quo of some commonly held perceptions. I guess it's my way of helping to make a difference.

Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you find something here that sparks your interest and that you might like to read. And please feel free to drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you.

This is Not a Lie

Literary fiction, lgbtq, romance

In my career as a music journalist I’ve written about a lot of killer bands, but the most gut-wrenching story I ever covered was that of Joel Reed, lead guitarist for hard rock outfit The Blackhearts.

The Blackhearts were based in St Kilda, Melbourne’s music capital in the early 1980s. They were looking for a new singer when a good-looking newcomer named Harry Engel turned up to audition. His blistering vocals were all they needed to rocket the band into super stardom.

Secretly gay, Joel fell for Harry hard and fast, but nothing could have prepared him for the tragedy that was about to befall them.

Open Wounds

Australia is known as the lucky country, but as we know luck is relative.

 

Open Wounds is a collection of unflinching Australian short stories that shines light on those moments in life that are as profound as they are traumatic.

 

Paperbac and ebook published by Dixi Books.

"Open wounds by S. C. Farrow, is a thrilling book. It's moving. Heart shaddering. And shows you an insight into the realities of others lives. This collection of Australian short stories is a must tbr. I feel like it's unlike any other book I've read before. I'm glad I read it, because the language and style created a emotional response while reading this books content. Love the authors voice and love the work. Can't wait to read more!"

Killervision

While watching B grade movies a brain-injured man is tormented by visions of his friends being murdered by a faceless killer. He becomes increasingly disturbed when he realizes it's only a matter of time before the killer comes for him.

 

Available to watch via streaming or DVD.

“If it doesn't win over the total horror community IT WILL DEFINITELY GO DOWN AS A CULT CLASSIC IN MY OPINION! I like it when a movie has character, an interesting plot and good actors and all three are present in this film.”

“I found this film entertaining, smart, and mature. The story is original, creative and comes with a twist that you only recognize as a possibility during the last act.”

Stained Glass

You are a young corporate lawyer.  Your life is perfect until you receive a text message from the secret society you joined when you were in college. They've been watching you. They want to make you an offer that could change your life. All you have to do is make a choice...

A short web-based interactive fiction where your choices influence the outcome of the story. 

"Not only did I enjoy the descriptive writing but the music that accompanied the text added another layer to the storytelling. I also felt that I had a sense of power in being able to navigate through the story with the ability to determine the main characters destiny, in fact I went as far as to read this several times to achieve four different endings."
