Sylvia Massara is a multi-genre author based in Sydney, Australia. She loves to dabble in wacky love affairs, drama, murder, sci-fi (or anything else that takes her fancy) over good coffee.
Born in Argentina from Italian and Spanish descent (with a bit of Swiss 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.
From a creative perspective, Sylvia has been writing since her early teens and her work consists of novels, screenplays and freelance writing. She has also dabbled in acting on and off, songwriting and even had her own band during her teens/early 20s where she performed at various venues.
As with most authors, Sylvia draws on her varied experience from the often puzzling tapestry of life. A few years ago Sylvia resigned from the human race because she discovered the animal kingdom was a much nicer place to be. Currently, Sylvia lives with her cat, Mia; and always vicariously through the many characters in her head. Occasionally, Sylvia ventures into the world of humans and she cherishes genuine friendships as they are a rare find.

Author Sylvia Massara has the enviable ability to write in multiple genres. Based on some of her other books, I picked up The Stranger hoping to find the same talent I found in her previous books. I was not disappointed. SciFi romance is not what I normally read, but I found this apocalyptic romance highly engaging. The characters Rhys and Carla are from two different worlds and must deal with moralistic issues as the threat of world destruction looms. Will Rhys choose his love for Carla? The fight between love and evil is present as in other stories, but the setting takes you to a different realm altogether. Ms. Massara is a story teller and no matter what world she writes in she takes us on a journey we won’t soon forget.
