About Me

sm sibylla red 3

I’m an LA girl with Jersey roots.  As a child, I could always be found with my head in a book. Once I figured out that people could actually make a living at writing, I beelined it to journalism school at the University of Southern California where I received my BA. 

As a freelancer, I’ve covered everything from entertainment to parenting issues to topical matters and I have interviewed some pretty cool people along the way such as Academy Award winning actors Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Academy Award nominee Will Smith; comedians/actors Dave Chappelle, Jamie Foxx, Kim Coles; and so many others!

My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines and websites including Vibe, Essence and The Chicago Tribune. But of course, like many freelancers, what I really wanted to do was pen the next BESTSELLING NOVEL. 

I’ve written two novels, “DreamCity,” “Bumped,” and a guide for parents, “Baby Modeling & Beyond: From The Stroller To The Red Carpet,” which is based on my daughter’s experience working in print/tv/film.  She started working as a baby and if you watch television, you’ve probably seen some of her commercials.  Fun fact: we’ve appeared in a Rice Krispies commercial together as well as in TLC’s Ballroom Bootcamp.

I’m still working on my bestseller journey and I’m so glad you stopped by to visit. Hope you continue to check in to see how things are going!
