Ia Uaro

I was born in the beautiful and remote, world’s widest tea plantation by Mount Kerinci in Sumatra where my dad was the plantation’s accountant, my mum a teacher. My dad died when I was 13, and I moved across the ocean. I proceeded to be the busiest teen ever: playing drumband, tutoring maths, learning English as the fifth language, and at 17 a teen magazine published my first fiction as a serial. Inundated by my fans’ letters, the publisher printed it as a book, which was subsequently bought by the Indonesian Department of Education for high-school libraries. I used the fund for my university studies, during which time I was active in aero-modelling, martial arts, mountaineering, speleology... and studied petroleum seismology among my music-playing friends. After my graduation I worked with French, Norwegian and American geophysical companies.

In Sydney since 1995, I now do several kinds of volunteer work for the community, assess manuscripts, and write real-life socio-fiction. My husband, who suffers permanent partial brain damage, says I now sleep-talk in English. Part of SYDNEY'S SONG's proceeds will be donated to the BRAIN FOUNDATION.
