L. Sydney first developed a love of reading during her childhood years. She spent many weekends and summer vacations at the local library where she would often sit on the floor of the children's section and thumb through dozens of books trying to decide which ones she wanted to take home. This love affair with reading and her insatiable desire for knowledge launched a curiosity into the supernatural and unexplained world of discovery that ultimately spawned the birth of L. Sydney Fisher, the writer. She wrote her first novella by the age of fifteen. Her creative pursuits continued in high school where she was active in Theatre and Dance and awarded the Best Lead Actress Award during her senior year. She first entered college as a Theatre/Journalism major but later changed her course of study. At the age of eighteen, Sydney was stricken with a chronic illness and life circumstances that forced her to change her pursuit of the stage, but her love of writing never faded.
