About Me

Hull is the city of my birth, but I have lived in the Beverley area for the past 20 years. I have a family in Hull and a family in Australia. Travelling to shores, both near and far, is often on my agenda. What keeps me young at heart? My grandchildren and my zest for life.

Hello, and welcome to my blog site. I am quite excited and nervous at the same time. But, I am thrilled to announce my first full length novel, THE YEARNING HEART, published by Robert Hale, will be out on 28th February 2011.


  1. Hello Sylvia,
    I am so pleased with your publication of this book and I wish you great success with it. I see that we love the same books, movies, and hobbies. Must be because we are peers! I have very fond memories of our days in Hull and I left a huge chunk of my heart with the place and people of England when we left ten years ago. I don't have a blog but I hope you will check my web site often to read my updates. Today I had a new book released. And I was told this is the Chinese year of the rabbit so I'm hoping both your books and mine will be hopping right off the shelves and into readers' hearts.
    Best regards, Linda

  2. Congratulations, Sylvia on your first book signig. I wish I could have been there. And how nice to have a hardback book out. I wish you great success with this book and the many I am sure will follow. Linda Swift
