About this author:
„Shirley – I’m celebrating my love for you with a pint of beer and a new tattoo… Shirley – you sure know how to make a young man angry…” – Billy Bragg (Greetings to the New Brunette)
Shirley Marr is
…Melissa Marr’s less tattooed sister. Perhaps.
…a wearer of tutus, black hoodies, purple nail polish and eyeliner.
…Guy Sebastian’s dream girl (she fully volunteers to be in his next music video).
Shirley Marr is also the author of the YA novel Fury released May 2010 and published by black dog books, an imprint of Walker Books Australia. Her Difficult Sophomore Novel, Preloved, was released April 2012.
Shirley wishes she were many things. Like the front woman of a hot band rocking an audience in an ultra-short mini, but unfortunately she’s tone deaf with appalling emo poetry skills. She also considered becoming an actress after her first taste of fame playing the lead role of “Mama Bear” in a Year 1 “Goldilocks” production, but it was decided she was better off stage than actually on. She would love to be a model, but Anna Wintour would probably say she’s fat.
It’s a good thing then that writing is her biggest, maddest love. Shirley writes what she describes as tragedy-comedy-drama YA fiction with “Mad-Bad-Little-Miss-Lady-Macbeths”. Her writing is like herself: brave, loud, passionate… and completely awkward and precocious. Like an emo Bambi learning how to walk.
Shirley believes everyone should stand up for themselves. If Anna Wintour did say she was fat, she would probably push Anna Wintour off the catwalk. She’s not a Geek or a Freak or a Popular or a Princess, she is what she believes everyone should be: just themselves.
