Although now primarily writing urban fantasy books, Sydney has also written contemporary romance novels.
Regardless of the genre, Sydney always writes about strong women who defy the odds and conventions of the world around them.
Sydney lives in the Chicago area and loves to root for the underdog: nice guys (they shouldn't finish last!) and true love (does my cuddly relationship with an adorable Shih-Tzu count here?).

Sibling rivalry turns deadly...
As Zephora recruits new paranormal creatures to battle Serena and her friends, Celestina divulges a chilling prophecy that a loved one will soon leave this dimension forever, while buried secrets about Zephora uncover the motivations behind the mysterious underworld creature named Mephisto.
But when Serena and Nolan drastically alter Celestina's destiny, Alexis transforms mere sibling rivalry into an obsessive devotion to kill Serena. If fulfilled, this quest will destroy a spell that has kept the hordes of hell from entering this dimension for nearly one century!
Honesty, Loyalty, Trust?...Not in this family line!
Serena Sykes will need to gain control of her latest supernatural ability now that Darius Coyne, the last remaining master vampire will stop at nothing to kill her, so he can rule the world beside the love of his life, the ancient sorceress, Zephora.
And if they don't destroy Serena, the tight-knit group of friends who fight alongside her might do it for them. Her tortured romantic relationship with Nolan, who takes away more from Serena than just pleasure each time they touch, may be more inclined to help Darius than he's letting on. And her identical twin sister, Alexis, and her niece, Celestina, take turns playing both willing ally and potential enemy.
In a race against time, Serena must vanquish the enemies that attack her at every turn and fight to keep her friends alive, sane, and on good terms, while also trying to locate the mythic Book of Souls...if she hopes to defeat the ultimate power couple.
Serena Sykes just discovered that the mother, identical twin sister, and niece she never knew existed…are the last remaining witches on the planet. That is, except for Serena, who recently received her own limited, albeit wildly erratic supernatural abilities.
But her newfound family isn’t interested in helping her master those gifts. After all, Serena’s mother has been communicating beyond the veil with the first witch in their line, a sorceress named Zephora who hopes to return to this dimension and destroy an ancient curse that would unleash paranormal creatures across the globe.
To help guide her in this new landscape, Serena turns to her grandmother, an elderly woman suffering from dementia and the only vampire in existence, a man who has his own mysterious agenda. With less than 48 hours to prevent her family from triggering a supernatural wasteland, Serena must learn to control her abilities…if she hopes to save the world!
