About Sydney Winward:
Sydney is a fantasy and paranormal romance author who dabbles in the occasional historical fiction. She loves building complex worlds filled with magic, strong characters, and emotional stories that can make you laugh and cry.

I am Donna and I'm a friend of The Kelly Society paranormal cleansing team. In fact, the founder Vivien Kelly is my best friend. So, I asked her if I could post about one of my favorite authors Sydney Winward. Her Bloodborn vampire series sits on the shelves of my metaphysical store Luna Books. I asked Sydney two questions for this posting and her answers are below. Enjoy!
Each day when you get up in the morning, what is it about the mystical, ghostly, and unexplained realm that keeps you riveted to write about it?
I write about vampires in my paranormal books, and one of the things I find most fascinating is that they have a completely different moral code than we do. This is something I love to address in my Bloodborn Series. For example, even though we see vampires as terrifying, evil beings, they don’t often see themselves as such.
Vampires have a completely different set of rules for living and surviving, and this is something that continues to pull me back in to write about these fascinating, paranormal beings.
What was your best Halloween ever?
I have always loved Halloween. Dressing up. Going to parties. Eating bucketloads of candy. But out of all my Halloweens, my favorite was when my son was two years old, just barely old enough to somewhat understand Halloween. He was so excited to dress up as a cowboy and go door to door trick-or-treating to pick out his favorite candies. The funny thing was he thought he had to exchange a candy at each door. He dug into his bucket, pulled out a candy, and placed it in the neighbors’ bowls before grabbing a new candy and running off. I never realized I could find so much enjoyment watching someone else have fun rather than me participating myself.
