Sydney Avey writes about ordinary people who muster faith and courage to step over uncertainty and continue the journey. Her novels invite compassion for the stumbles of the past and offer hope for the future, if only a glimmer.

Sydney Avey is the author of The Sheep Walker’s Daughter and The Lyre and the Lambs. In her latest novel, The Trials of Nellie Belle, she tells the story of the great grandmother she never knew. Reputed to be the first female court reporter in the Pacific Northwest, Nellie traveled to small towns and large cities to record court proceedings. She left a legacy of short stories about life in the West during the progressive era, where justice was swift and common sense overruled.

For me, writer's block is a prompt to go do something else, to engage in an activity to relax my mind and refire my imagination (or no activity at all). A yoga class, a hike in Yosemite, a walk on the beach, a movie or a play, any experience that helps me rest and refocus. My nemesis is marketing block! that requires a technology fast or foreign travel! In both cases, prayer is an excellent reset button. (less)

I may be influenced by the fact that Romeo and Juliet is not my favorite Shakespeare play, and family feuding is not my favorite theme. The history presented by Fortier is interesting (a tale as old as time), but sometimes I got lost in the details. ...more
