Author Bio

The international and USA Today bestselling author of more than a dozen critically acclaimed novels of historical fiction and romance, Syrie James loves All Things English and is obsessed with the Victorian and Regency eras. (Fabulous gowns! Men on horseback! Country manor houses! Tea and finger sandwiches! Scones and jam! Sign me up please!)

Syrie loves to write about strong, brilliant, adventurous women who are ahead of their time and will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams, and the bold, irresistible men who crash headlong into their lives, and turn everything upside down forever. A research and story structure maven, Syrie is committed to writing page-turning books and taking her characters on challenging journeys of growth and discovery.

After writing romantic novels about Jane Austen and the Brontës (Syrie’s favorite classic authors), a passionate version of Dracula, and a sizzling Victorian romance trilogy, she has gleefully turned her pen (okay, her computer) to writing historical murder mysteries set in the English countryside. This requires many research trips to England, the best perk on earth. A member of the Writer’s Guild of America, JASNA, and the Historical Novel Society, Syrie has sold numerous scripts to film and television and her work as a playwright has been produced across North America and in New York City.

You will often find Syrie dressing up in one of her many Regency frocks and dancing the night away at a Regency ball or performing on stage as Jane Austen herself. When she’s not writing or reading, Syrie loves to take long walks, eat delicious food, attend movies and the theatre, and play board games with family and friends. Syrie lives in Los Angeles a stone’s throw from her grown children.
