Although she loves the application and practice of Ecology, as she was finishing her Ph.D. she began to feel like she wasn’t going to pursue a career as a research scientist. Searching for other ways to explore and process the world, she started to write…fiction. “I was playing when I started writing creative work, I never pretended to have a career as a novelist.” says Sylvia.
