Multi-talented, she also paints, although she will tell you she only paints well enough to know that she should write. Also, Sulari grows French truffles on her farm near the Snowy Mountains, NSW. Sulari was recently offered a Varuna Fellowship. She was commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers 2008 Jim Hamilton Award and was long-listed for the Hachette/WLD writers Centre Australian Manuscript Development Program for fiction writers.
