The youngest in a family of four girls, Sylvia was the only one who had the opportunity to go to college. Her mother insisted that she become a teacher. She was all too happy to comply for the privilege of going away to school. Sylvia is a graduate of the University of Illinois with a degree in English and journalism. Her ambition, however, was to be a writer and editor, and after five years of teaching in public schools, she transitioned to working with professional associations. Her working career has centered on editing journals and magazines and providing public relations services for associations.
A dedicated animal lover, Sylvia has owned (or been owned by!) a number of cats, three Labrador Retrievers, and two horses. Throughout her life she has domesticated formerly feral cats, and they have become totally devoted to her. She enjoys writing non-fiction inspirational stories with an uplifting Christian message. Interesting people and her personality-plus pets are her favorite subjects.
Sylvia's husband David is a pastor and also a dedicated animal lover. In the 10+ years they've been married, they have been lovingly manipulated by Shadow, a sweet but stubborn Labrador Retriever, and have taken in seven feral cats, four of which still live under their roof.
