A Few Right Thinking Men is set in the 1930s, in the thick of the Depression, but more importantly amid a growing fear of communism. The story is based around the character of Rowland Sinclair, the youngest of the very wealthy Sinclairs, an aspiring artist living with his penniless friends in his father's estate.
About The Author
Sulari set out to study astrophysics, ended up graduating in law, and later abandoned her legal career to write books instead of contracts. When the mood takes her, she paints, although she maintains that she does so only well enough to know that she should write.
She grows French black truffles on her farm in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains of NSW, which she shares with her young family and several animals... the farm, not the truffles.
Sulari is shortlisted for Best First Book in our region for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize 2011. She was also recently offered a Varuna Fellowship. She was commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers’ 2008 Jim Hamilton Award, long-listed for the Hachette/QLD writers Centre Australian Manuscript Development Program for fiction writers, and shortlisted for the 2008 New Holland Publishers and NSW Writers Centre Genre Fiction Award.
She has been writing for a few years, but thinking about it most of her life. She’s pretty sure now that writing is what’s she’s supposed to do.
A Few Right Thinking Men is her debut novel. Her second book in the Rowland Sinclair Series, A Decline in Prophets, will be out in July 2011.
Sulari, under the name S.D. Gentill, will release her 1st book in the exciting new Hero adventure series for Young Adults, Chasing Odysseus, in March 2011. Four young heroes in a quest against myth, magic...and betrayal.

Comments about A Few Right Thinking Men:
The first in a series of murder mysteries set in 1930s, featuring the artist and dilettante Rowland Sinclair, whose fortune allows him to support his friends – a Communist poet, an alluring sculptress and a painter. With newspaper snippets of the times heading each chapter, the mood of the times is well-expressed. I must admit I was hoping it would be funnier and faster-paced, with less about politics and more about parties, but it was an engaging read.
