Sylvia is the #1 New York Times, #1 USA Today & #1 international bestselling author of over twenty award-winning novels translated into 41 languages. With tens of millions of copies of her books in print, she is a #1 bestseller in 28 countries.

For the past three years, Sylvia’s novels took spots among the top ten bestselling books on global year-end sales round ups, making her one of the most widely read authors in the world today. She has been nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Author and her work has been honored as Amazon’s Best of the Year. Sylvia served as the 22nd President of Romance Writers of America.


Hailed as “one of the most successful romance writers in the world” by Fox News, Sylvia’s work has been covered in Time, Variety, People, the Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan, the Associated Press, USA Today, and Entertainment Weekly – to name just a few. She has been the subject of trivia questions on the television game shows Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and Jeopardy!, as well as a Kit Hoover recommended read on Access Hollywood Live. Her Crossfire series is presently in development with Lionsgate for cable television adaptation.

In addition to her novels, Sylvia has written numerous novellas and short stories for both print and digital-first release. Her work has been called an “exhilarating adventure” by Publishers Weekly and “wickedly entertaining” by Booklist. She’s been honored with the RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice award, the National Readers’ Choice Award, and multiple nominations for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® Award of Excellence.

Sylvia travels extensively in conjunction with various speaking engagements. She is a frequent workshop presenter and panelist at events such as the RT Book Lovers Convention, Romance Writers of America’s National Convention, and Comic-Con, and a popular keynote speaker for writing programs presented by local chapters, national and international organizations, and colleges across the United States.

Her book tours and travel engagements have taken her around the globe. Born in Los Angeles, she grew up in Orange County (the O.C.), and later lived in Monterey and Oceanside. Sylvia now lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, but occasionally enjoys her pied-à-terre on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York. She considers the two vibrant, energetic, and never-dark cities perfect for a writer whose working hours are as unpredictable as her characters. Sylvia’s work and life are the inspirations for Beyond Words, the digital lifestyle magazine.
