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 descent (with a bit of Spanish and Swiss lineage 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.
Sylvia's most recent novel, The Stranger, is a sci-fi apocalyptic tale of moralistic issues that involve the fight of love vs evil in the cosmos. The novel was inspired by David Bowie, and his own management company had agreed to pass it on to Mr. Bowie to read it with a view to a film option. Alas, this was never to be, however, as Mr. Bowie passed away prior to the release of the novel.
As you may have guessed, Sylvia is a self-confessed and die-hard Bowie Head... Ever since she can remember she has been an ardent admirer of the great David Bowie and his incredible talent. Sylvia dedicated The Stranger to her idol... And she still lives with a broken heart for his loss to our universe.
