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 and Spanish descent (with a bit of Swiss 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

The latest book I released was in 2016, and it was an apocalyptic romance. I'm a multi-genre author so you can check out all my books at www.sylviamassara.com.

I'm currently working on another Mia Ferrari mystery but this won't be released until late 2017/early 2018.

The first Mia Ferrari mystery, Playing with the Bad Boys, is very loosely based on real life events that took place many years ago, involving the spouse of an acquaintance of mine. The mystery (or crime) was never solved. Of course, the whole story in the Mia Ferrari mystery is highly fictionalised, and even the plot line has been changed to protect those involved; but the essence of the true story lies at the centre of the novel's story. After over 20 years, this story still has the power to haunt me.(less)

thoughts requires focus and practise. If you continue to focus
as you have been, to think as you have been, and to believe
as you have been, then nothing in your experience will change"
