Sydney Jane Baily

Sydney’s writes historicals in more than one era.

Jill Hughey

My series of romances set in medieval France and Bavaria began with two characters working out their relationship in my head. I literally searched an atlas of world history to figure out where to unfold their story of resistance and unbidden love. Determined to avoid the well-covered territories of England and the like, my hero and heroine landed in Charlemagne’s Empire, in the period of political turmoil after that emperor’s death. This beginning to my writing career tells a lot about how I write: my stories are character-driven. I have to understand what is motivating someone to act the way they are in my books because, for me, it all …
