About Sydney

About Sydney
Writing has always been one of the things that grounds me. From writing my own books on printer paper supplied by my mother as a child to becoming a nationally recognized collegiate speech and debate competitor, an opinion columnist and editor at a local newspaper, and teaching writing in many different contexts, I've always enjoyed not only crafting my own narratives, but helping others in crafting theirs as well!
