Heather Silvio

After working as a licensed psychologist and life coach for over a decade, in 2017, Heather Silvio made the decision to focus on writing and return to school for her master of fine arts in creative writing at Sierra Nevada College. School was an amazing experience, and she graduated in August 2019.

Prior to 2018, Silvio published in a number of genres, both fiction and nonfiction. Although there will doubtless be a few others, Silvio plans to write largely in the realm of the paranormal going forward. She considered her Paranormal Talent Agency Series wrapped in 2019, but an idea for a second season surfaced, so readers can expect season 2 to launch in 2020. She also has outlines ready to go for three interconnected series in the coming years. And who knows what other ideas she'll have in the meantime!

In addition to writing, she also trains law enforcement and performs on stage and screen.

Silvio lives in fabulous Las Vegas with her husband and cat; they love to be involved in their community, volunteering as ushers for their local theater delivering food to the homebound, and helping homeless animals find forever homes. 

Silvio's guiding philosophy: "Dreams are the reality you have yet to create."
