How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?
I come from a family of educators and voracious readers so I don’t know that there was ever a time I wasn’t dreaming up one story or another. Books are in my blood! I wrote my first novella when I was seventeen, but I didn’t publish my first work until last year.
Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)
I love autobiographies and essays by comedians (David Sedaris, Tina Fey, pretty much anyone funny), and I have tons of romance idols: Kristen Ashley, Tara Sivec, Emma Chase, Julie James, Alice Clayton…I could go on forever. Then, there are the classics that make me swoon – anything by the Bronte sisters and definitely Jane Austen.
What are your greatest sources of inspiration?
Music is a huge source of inspiration for me. Most of my books start with a song I can’t get out of my head. My latest release, The Spark, was inspired by the song “Kiss Me Slowly” by Parachute.
What genre(s) do you write?
I’m a total sucker for Romantic Comedy because I like having all the feels – so that’s what I have to write!
Do you have any current or future projects?
I’m working on the next novel in my Carolina Connections series. The working title is The Lucky One and it follows two characters we met previously in the series – Bailey and Jake. Their path to happily-ever-after is a bit bumpy, but it’s fun to watch them fumble a bit!
Do you have an author website?
Do you have any blogs?
No, but people can catch up with me on my FB page: Sylvie Stewart Romance
Where can people find your work? (to purchase or just to read)
If you could feature just one title, what would it be?
The Spark (although, as soon as I’m done with my WIP I would probably change my answer to that one – lol!)
Do you have any pseudonyms?
Aha! Sylvie Stewart is my pseudonym – cue mystery music
Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?
I’m a total craft nerd, I love to read (naturally), and I’ve taken up kayaking since moving to North Carolina. It rocks!
Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I used to work summers at the circus – true story! Also, I’m double jointed and I can’t burp.
