ABOUT THE AUTHOR

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."

ABOUT HER STORIES

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.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I'm working. And I'm daydreaming, and I'm reaching out to friends. I live a very simple life, but I like to think that it is rich in many ways.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Apart from my children who I adore with all my heart and soul, story-telling inspires me to get out of bed every day. I love to regale people with plots that twists and turns, and I love to share characters who are alive and dynamic and who are lovable even if they're flawed. Who among us aren't?
