About Angelin Sydney


As a writer, Angelin Sydney interweaves romantic stories with thrilling plots that twist and turn in many ways.

Since moving to Australia twenty-five years ago, she has had numerous incarnations. She was a banker, an insurance seller, housing loan broker, and home-stay mother to literally hundreds of international students. Over the years, she has also become a small business owner, casual kitchen hand and currently, a live-in nanny. So, one can say, she has been around.

Her most consistent role, however, is being a mother to her four wonderful children, one of whom has gone ahead leaving her devastated and heartbroken. It was his untimely departure that motivated her to write stories to help others heal, laugh, hope and dare to dream.

She is a believer in the kindness of people, so by extension, this has been the usual theme of her stories. She believes in redemption, love, and purpose. Every story she writes reflect these values.

For her, writing is as essential as breathing. The only reason she’d stop doing it is if she were incapacitated or dead. Working for a living gets in the way of her writing which she finds very sad. In the ideal world, all she’d be doing is entertaining her readers. This is her utmost wish.

As a novelist, her style is to keep conversations realistic. So funnily enough, although she doesn't swear, her characters do; perhaps this is her unconscious release.

The questions most readers ask her of her writing style: What makes you distinct from other writers?

There are two things: One, she likes to infuse her stories with what she calls the "everyday moment" because it adds flavour to the narrative. It gives it authenticity. For instance, if someone was depress she'd have the character watch a lot of infomercials on television. From her observation, this is a reality of life, when we are struggling, we do mindless activities like sleep or watch the paint dry.

Two, she likes the interplay of light and dark. "That's life, isn't it?" She said, adding that, "even in our period of mourning, there is laughter. And when we are happy, sadness still creeps into our lives. As a result of this, my stories tend to be a roller-coaster ride. A lot of ups and downs."


They are stunningly original, funny, swoon-worthy and thrilling to the core.

She’s the self-styled queen of romantic comedy and the romance/action/thriller genre.

Review by: masondaxton on Nov. 22, 2017 :
I loved the book and I loved how good the characters were together. It makes me idolize love again how I used to when I was younger. Sweet sweet romances are always my favorite. She was right, I was smiling for days after reading it haha. Really does leave a little print on my heart. It’s known for people not to want to date people in their same line of work or who they see often while working. And in this book that happens, but this guy that Pippa likes is irresistible. So things don’t exactly turn out how she planned. It’s a beautiful story on how someone can make everything change for you and in some cases like this one, you just change one thing to make that happen. In this book it was the rule she had about cops. But he was an exception to it.

Review by: amanda williams on Nov. 10, 2017 :
I love the fact that this book is light hearted but also includes the drama that Mrs Sydney is well known for.

I loved this book. It's a great story you don't want to put down because you really want to find out what happens. All the characters are so well written it grabs you by the scruff of the neck and doesn't let go until you reach the end. I did like the way it ended but I won't spoil it for you because you need to discover it for yourself but suffice to say it is very satisfactory.

Cannot wait to read more

Had an opportunity to read this book prior to publication. I was blown away by its simplicity at the same time its inherent profoundness. Worth a treat. Don't just download it, purchase it! It's free anyway. Add it to your library.

It's different. It has a spiritual tone but surprisingly works. A good balance of funny and serious. My complain is its too short. Such a great read.
