Sylvia Massara is a multi-genre author based in Sydney, Australia. She loves to dabble in wacky love affairs, drama, murder, scifi (or anything else that takes her fancy) over good coffee.
Born in Argentina, from Italian descent (with a bit of Spanish and Swiss lineage thrown in), and transplanted to Australia at age 10, Sylvia describes herself as a bit of a "moggie" cat by way of mixed pedigree. She is also a citizen of the world as she has travelled widely throughout most of her life and she's the proud owner of three passports.
As with most authors Sylvia draws on her varied experience from the often puzzling tapestry of life. Sylvia loves nature and communing with the animal kingdom (as her pampered kitty, Mia, will attest), and vicariously through the many characters in her head. Occasionally, however, she will venture into the world of humans, albeit for a limited time, as she prefers the unconditional and genuine company that animals bring to this planet. Having said this, Sylvia enjoys the time she spends with her five-year-old niece immersing herself in their many creative projects. She believes the artistic creativity that comes from a child is both spontaneous and direct from the soul.
Sylvia's most recent novel, The Stranger, is a scifi apocalyptic tale of moralistic issues that explores the fight of love vs evil in the cosmos. The novel was inspired by David Bowie (Sylvia's lifelong idol) and much to her pleasure and excitement, Mr Bowie's own management company had agreed to pass on the novel to him as he was a voracious reader. But, alas, this was never to be as the super talented and gifted David Bowie passed away prior to the release of the novel, breaking the heart of millions throughout the world, including Sylvia's own heart and dashing her hopes that she may have met him in person and even worked with him on the adaptation of The Stranger into a screenplay. With great sadness for the loss of her idol, Sylvia dedicated the novel in his memory.
