Ia Uaro is an Australian author.

She was a published author at 17 and used the proceeds to help fund her university studies, during which time she was active in aero-modelling, martial arts, mountaineering, speleology... and studied petroleum seismology among her music-playing friends. After her graduation she worked with French, Norwegian and American geophysical companies, besides being a volunteer translator.

In Sydney since 1995, she is now a mum who does several kinds of volunteer work, assesses manuscripts, reviews books, interviews authors and writes real-life socio fiction.

Watch out for "Heart of Borneo", her next real-life book on conservation series, a forest crime.

Calling all romantics!
