About Me

Hey, my name is Siana-Rose Crawford and I’m a British author, blogger, podcaster, and freelance writer. My books are under my author name, S. R. Crawford. They can be purchased on Amazon for a small price, and they’re my babies so I hope you give them a try!

Let me just list a few notable things that you may wish to know about me:

  • I am educated to college level, and have completed a year of a university degree (before deciding to actively pursue my writing career instead).
  • Self-published 2 books in my Young Adult Fantasy series; wrote a self-help book and published it to help others manage anxiety and depression better, as I have learned to do myself.
  • I was recently employed as an SEO content writer whilst writing my books, before pursuing self-employment.
  • I have travelled to South Africa, where I experienced life living like a local (it opened my eyes and lead to the book How Africa Changed Me which you can view online here).
  • I am currently writing two new children’s fantasy book series that I will publish traditionally with a publishing house this time.
  • I used to run an Anxiety and Depression Anonymous support group, which lead to my passion for mental health awareness.
  • Hosted my own Mental Health Awareness Event in 2016.
  • I’ve been invited as a guest speaker at events to talk about Mental Health.

  • Have written a few blogs before this one.
  • Have made my own short films (amateur).
  • Have produced writing pieces for others in various different ways.
  • I am inspired by J.K. Rowling; George R.R. Martin; Elizabeth Gilbert; Emma Watson, etc.
  • My favourite YouTubers are Lavendaire and Kalyn Nicholson.
  • My books have been enjoyed worldwide by people from the UK, USA, Europe and even Africa!
  • I used to have a YouTube channel where I spoke about books, writing, and life (before realising I wanted a podcast instead).
  • I am open about my experiences and thoughts about Mental Illness.
  • I loved studying English, Media, Japanese, and Film Studies most during my time in education.
  • Dabbled in script writing for a competition and enjoyed it a lot.
  • I’m friends with other authors, writers, and creatives.
  • I love films and TV shows, like a lot!
  • I now actively try to travel as much as I can.
