My Story

Author Sydney J. BailyHm, tell my own story? What’s to tell? I’m just a late-blooming word lover. I wrote my first romance novel when I was 17 years old, and it was rejected by my eighteenth birthday. Deservedly so, I might add. I went to college (earning history and English lit degrees) and then post-grad school, then worked in publishing for the next 25 years, and still do, as a freelance editor and writer.

Currently, I’m working on The Defiant Hearts Series of 1880s Americana romance novels, published by ePublishing Works!  I’m also co-authoring the second and third book in The Warriors of York series with Marliss Melton.

Sydney J. Baily Cat Whisker StudioWhen I’m not writing, I mostly work for other authors as an editor. I also develop websites–if you ask me nicely and pay me handsomely. You can learn more about my professional life (apart from writing) at my work site, Cat Whisker Studio, and contact me there for editing (copy editing or developmental editing, and all things related), website quotes, book trailers and Facebook ads.
