S. R. Carrillo is the former pen name of Titan H. C.
Born and raised in the leafy suburbs outside Houston, Texas, they have been writing ever since they’ve been able. They tend to explore many different aspects of human (and nonhuman) sexuality and identity in their work, since it affects a bit of everything they do in life.
The Soul is their first novel and the beginning of a black LGBT dark fantasy series.
I’m Ty. I write fun black LGBT lit under the name Titan H. C. My debut novel, The Soul, the first in a futuristic dark fantasy series, came out March 2014 under the pen name S. R. Carrillo. I am currently re-writing and re-packing it and the sequel, Procession of Eternity, for later release, along with the rest of the series.
I’m 20-somethin’ years old, and I’ve pretty much been writing for the whole time. In that time, a lot has happened. I identify as genderqueer and use neutral pronouns. Identity has always been a huge deal to me. I try to reflect it in everything. That includes being Black. I always incorporate in my books those marginalized aspects of reality that rarely get shown, much less in fiction: race, gender, sexuality, disability, etc. It’s fun! And it’s also true to myself — which has always been the most important part of livin’, if you ask me.
Oh, yeah – and I’ll review your book, indie authors (just ask me).
