Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” Mark Twain, or even simpler, “Just Do It” Nike.
And that’s exactly what she did. After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative romantic side and wrote Seeing Red, and its sequel. That first pen stroke sealed the deal and she fell in love with writing.
Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she’s not writing you ... read more

As a graduate of Florida State University, I’ve written in a number of arenas over the years ranging from public health to news and sports. When it comes to my fictional work, however, I’m a firm believer that nothing shapes an author’s writing like experience which is why I credit my tenures in radio, law enforcement, sports management, and the military for much of my thematic inspiration (plus the legion of friends and family who stood with me through all of it).
Beyond writing, I’m an avid fan of audiobooks and athletics, though it’s also not uncommon to find me at a concert (LOVE music!), a movie, or somewhere outdoors.
A native of Florida, I currently reside in Raleigh, North Carolina with m ... read more

I grew up in a small town on the Welsh coast where just a short walk took you into the countryside. There one could encounter badgers, foxes, rabbits and so on. It was the perfect place for a young person to grow up. The town, the sea and the countryside, we had it all!
Like many in my town, when I was old enough I went to sea and travelled far and wide and fell in love with planet Earth. At the end of my travels my wife and I chose to live in Canada, our home for almost fifty years.
Eventually we gravitated to Vancouver Island off the West Coast of Canada where we now live. It is quite like the place where we both grew up, which is why, perhaps, I feel such co ... read more
