Sylvia is a lifelong lover of the written word in all its forms, but particularly fantasy and young adult fiction. After completing a Bachelor of Psychology, she realised that her true passion was for writing stories about the supernatural, as well as advocating for more positive representations of diversity in young adult fiction. Sylvia is currently completing a postgraduate degree in Writing, Editing, and Publishing. She hopes to combine the skills and knowledge from both her degrees to finish her young adult fantasy novel about an Australian teenager trying to balance mental health issues and magic.
