Sydney Jane Baily writes historical romances, including the Defiant Hearts series set in America in the late 19th century, as well as delving into the medieval world, the Georgian era, and the Regency period. She believes in happily-ever-after stories for an already challenging world. Born and raised in California, she has traveled the world, spending an inordinate amount of time in the U.K. where her extended family resides, eating fish and chips, drinking shandys, and snacking on Maltesers and Cadbury bars. After obtaining degrees in English literature and in history, besides writing novels, she has spent time as a copyeditor, cat snuggler, website designer, production editor, mother of two, and faithful friend to her dog, among other endeavors both literary and not. Sydney currently lives in New England with her family--human, canine, and feline. You can learn more about her books, read her blog, and contact her via her website at https://www.SydneyJaneBaily.com.
