S. R. Carrillo

(c) 2014

S. R. Carrillo is the pen name of U.S. Army Sergeant Sierra R. Collett.

Born and raised in the leafy suburbs outside Houston, Texas, she’s young, married and has been writing ever since she’s been able. As a multiracial, nonbinary, whocaressexual, she tends to explore different aspects of human (and nonhuman) sexuality and identity in her work.

She’s used to being referred to as “she” for simplicity’s sake—since, technically, she both is and isn’t. She considers it an honor.

The Soul is her first novel and the beginning of a futuristic queer dark fantasy series.

Unofficially… howdy.

I’m Sierra. I write classy ass queer lit under the name S. R. Carrillo. My debut novel, The Soul, the first in a futuristic queer dark fantasy series, came out March 2014. I’ve been runnin’ full speed ahead ever since.

I’m 20-somethin’ years old, and I’ve pretty much been writing for the whole time.

I identify as genderqueer/genderfluid/trigender/lolwtfbbqsauce. I am female. I am male. I am both. I am neither. Gender roles suck. So I vacillate between them. I’d be nothing short of honored if you referred to me with female pronouns, though. Identity both is and isn’t a huge deal to me. I try to reflect it in everything. 

I also say “y’all” a lot, talk out the side of my mouth and hide almost all of my present participle endings. It must be because my hometown is Houston, Texas and forever has my heart. As do the stars above.

I’ve only had one job my entire life – serving in the United States Army – and I’ve done it for a little over five years now.

I’m friendly as fuck. I promise. Let’s lit (or not) chat sometime.

Oh, yeah – and I’ll review your book, indie authors (if it’s dark enough).
