My name is S.C. Farrow. I'm the author of Open Wounds, a collection of gritty short stories set in Australia.

I 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 Mel Gibson of Cuba, climbing inside the Great Pyramid of Egypt, and getting arrested for possession of a prohibited substance (whoops!).

As a writer, I'm fascinated by a variety of topics, but I admit that I'm also driven by beautiful words and broken characters. They really are the essence of my work.
