About Me

Hi, I’m Sydney.  I’m a storyteller.  For as long as I’ve been alive I’ve loved to tell stories, whether that is through writing or acting, my two favourite things.  I feel it is something I need to do.  Everyone has a story, and we need to speak for the people who can’t or don’t know how to speak for themselves.

I believe stories have power.  Not superhero power, but a humble power that can creep into people’s hearts and engulf them.  Stories have the power to help people feel less alone, feel understood.  I think that is incredible.

I love being a storyteller.  I love being able to speak for the thousands of people who feel like they don’t have a voice.  I want people to read and hear and see what I have to say and be like ‘she gets me.  She understands.  Maybe other people do too’.

I love writing.  I love acting.  I love reading, bath bombs, big cities, glitter, horses, cheesecake, tea, mugs, God, and smiles.

I find joy in the little things.  That’s the secret to waking up and being happy – although I have to admit, I’m not always happy in the mornings, mostly because I never get enough sleep!

Soaring over a jump on horseback and landing so smoothly you feel as if you are riding pure wind, watching a snowfall, reading a good book, sipping tea on a chilly day… these are all things I get to enjoy regularly that make me happy.

Through this blog, I’d like to share one of my biggest loves with the world.  Books.  Through reading books, you can journey anyplace in the world and be home in time for dinner.  Through reading books you can meet beautiful, crazy, awesome people.  Through reading books you can better understand those around you in your everyday life.  Books encourage you to speak to people you maybe wouldn’t have spoken to otherwise.

I hope that through this blog you’ll find books that will take you to amazing places, books that will introduce you to amazing people, and books that will give you wisdom and insight.

Oh, and by the way – I think you’re awesome.  You just read seven entire paragraphs about me.  Thanks for caring so much!  I hope I get to know you better, too.  You can subscribe to my blog via email or Bloglovin.  Just click on the Bloglovin icon on the sidebar, or enter your email address in the required field on the sidebar.  Thanks again!
