The author was 12 years old when she realized that she wanted to write romance novels for a living. Her mother gave her Diane Dunaway’s ‘Desert Hostage’ and told her to find a husband like the book’s protagonist.
The novel sunk its hooks into Sylvia. She was depressed when the story finally came to an end. However, Sylvia also realized that she wanted to write stories like the one she had just completed.
That dream wouldn’t come to pass for several years. The author’s mother raised her. She met her father for the first time at the age of 16. He was living in Germany when she flew out to meet him.
In the weeks that followed, she learned that children were a sore subject for her parents. Her father wasn’t so sure he wanted children. Her mother disagreed.
The author’s fans have probably noticed that her characters have complicated relationships with their mothers. Sylvia’s personal life inspired the trope.
Her mother grew up in a different era. As such, she couldn’t make sense of her daughter’s ideas and priorities, which is why they clashed so frequently. However, Sylvia doesn’t want people to think that the characters in her stories are based on her.
Like her peers in the field, she puts a lot of herself into her work. But none of her characters were directly inspired by real people. Although, she has plenty of inspiration to draw from.
The author joined the military at 22, working for the U.S. Army Military Intelligence as a Russian Linguist. Her days as a Russian interrogator came in handy when she kickstarted her publishing career in the early 2000s. She had a better understanding of the human psyche than most people.
The single mother had to suffer through the trials of divorce, an experience she cannot describe to anyone that has never struggled with the concept. Her encounter with such potent heartache has shaped some of the stories she writes.
People frequently compare her work to E.L. James’ Fifty Shades series. But she doesn’t understand the comparisons. While her sex scenes are steamy, they are nowhere near as racy as the sex E.L. James writes.
Her characters don’t experiment with toys. Sylvia looks at every sex scene as a tool that moves the story forward. It must have emotional resonance. This is why great sex scenes require so much time and effort.

The author has published some of her works as ‘S.J. Day’ and ‘Livia Dare.’ Sylvia’s best books include:
Bared To You: Eva had a traumatic childhood. Every so often, the demons of her past would emerge. But Gideon had demons as well. When they first met, the billionaire took her breath away.
She was drawn to the beautiful man like a moth to a flame. She knew he was dangerous. The 24-year-old understood that letting him in would break her. But she couldn’t help it.
Gideon saw her for who she was. He saw her wounds. True healing wouldn’t begin until they surrendered to their desires.
Reflected In You: Eva and Gideon are back. They continue to devour one another. Eva sees a kindred spirit in Gideon, someone that can complete her. She knows that the billionaire understands the trauma that ruined her childhood.
However, their relationship is not quite as smooth sailing as Eva would like. She wants to lean on Gideon, to give her heart to him. The young woman wears her heart on her sleeve.
But Gideon is still guarded. Despite Eva’s declarations of love, Gideon has parts of himself he refuses to reveal. Eva doesn’t know if she can continue to trust him blindly.
