Many of my readers ask me how I got started writing. Like so many authors, my interest in writing dates back to my childhood. I grew up an only child, so I had my share of solitude to spin stories in my head. At the tender age of ten, I mailed a short story to a contest for kids, and later received my first rejection letter. Enter my new reality as a would-be writer!
Years later, after launching forth on a nursing career, getting married, and becoming a mom to our two sons, the writing bug bit me again! And now 20-some years after that, I’m happy to say I’ve published several romance novels for teens and adults. My short stories and articles have also been printed in national magazines.
On my BOOKS page, you’ll find a list of my titles, along with their covers and a sampling of book reviews that have appeared online. Dive in! Before you go, please stop by my BLOG and drop me a line. I always love to hear from my readers.
Additionally, here are the links to my social media sites. I hope I see you there!

Sydell Voeller grew up in Washington State, but has lived in Oregon for over thirty years. Throughout her twenty-year writing career, her published novels for teens and adults have reflected her love for the Pacific Northwest’s ocean beaches, inlets and waterways, evergreen forests, and mountains. Sydell resides in Oregon with her husband. They married in 1971 and have two sons.
Also pet lovers, the Voellers have provided a home for several cats, a dog, gerbils, hamsters, and a turtle--but not all at the same time! A small rodent cemetery still occupies one corner of their backyard. She and her husband enjoy camping, reading, playing Scrabble, day trips to the Oregon coast, and spending time with their grandchildren and pampered feline.
When Sydell isn't writing, she enjoys camping, walking, amateur astronomy, reading, and surfing the web. In 1987 after the publication of her first novel, she was named by the Washington County Mushaw Center, Woman of the Year in Communications.
Formerly a registered nurse, Sydell now teaches writing correspondence courses, sponsored by the Long Ridge Writer’s Institute (a home study course in writing short stories and articles) in West Redding, Connecticut.
