Sibylla Nash

Biography

I’m an LA girl with Jersey roots. As a child, I could always be found with my head in a book. Once I figured out that people could actually make a living at writing, I beelined it to journalism school at the University of Southern California where I received my BA.

As a freelancer, I’ve covered everything from entertainment to parenting issues to topical matters and I have interviewed some pretty cool people along the way such as Academy Award winning actors Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Academy Award nominee Will Smith; comedians/actors Dave Chappelle, Jamie Foxx, Kim Coles; and so many others!

My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines and websites including Vibe, Essence and The Chicago Tribune. But of course, like many freelancers, what I really wanted to do was pen the next BESTSELLING NOVEL.

I’ve written two novels, “DreamCity,” “Bumped,” and a guide for parents, “Baby Modeling & Beyond: From The Stroller To The Red Carpet,” which is based on my daughter’s experience working in print/tv/film. She started working as a baby and if you watch television, you’ve probably seen some of her commercials. Fun fact: we’ve appeared in a Rice Krispies commercial together as well as in TLC’s Ballroom Bootcamp.

I’m still working on my bestseller journey and I’m so glad you stopped by to visit. Hope you continue to check in to see how things are going!

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember desperately wanting a typewriter, an electric typewriter, for my 10th birthday. I had an old typewriter that I had been working on that was just too slow. I was working on a horror story about a sleep away camp and murders (yes, me at 10). I loved to watch a lot of horror movies at the time, can't you tell? So it's funny that most of my fiction work has been chicklit and that it's only recently that I wrote and completed my first horror short story - The Mark.
What is your writing process?
Usually, a character will come to me. Sometimes, it's just a snatch of dialogue and it's enough to make me want to find out more about them. Those stories don't always get completed but my process is the same. I sit down and start filling in the blanks. Sometimes I'll start with the back story of the characters, sometimes I'll outline the plot. It'll take me a few weeks to really get a handle on the story. I'll use index cards, either physical ones or a template on my computer and start mapping out scenes. It will take another few weeks before I actually start writing the story. There's a lot of gestating and day dreaming that occurs beforehand.
