There comes a moment in a careerist’s life when a money-oriented profession loses its savor, prompting the careerist to throw in the towel in favor of an occupation wherein there is self-satisfaction. While we are at it, some writers’ writing rituals can make you raise an eyebrow, such as those of writers who prefer a noisy and chaotic background rather than a silent one while they are writing. These two aspects describe Sidney Halston.

Sidney Halston is an American penwoman who has three young children. Halston’s birthplace is Miami upon Florida, and she is presently domiciled in South Florida alongside her family. The niche that Halston specializes in is particularly the romance, chick lit, and contemporary genres. Halston’s maxim is hewed from the slogan of Nike and American author Mark Twain’s rule of getting started in a bid to stay ahead.

In the run-up to plunging in her writing career, Sidney Halston worked as an attorney and she is still a legal practitioner. Her love for her family aside, she loves reading ardently and writing voraciously. Halston is so adept at her writing career such that her literary work has been compared to that of renowned American writers Vi Keeland (just like Halston, she is an attorney and doubles up as a writer), Kendall Ryan, romance penwoman Sarah Castille, and award-nominated woman of letters Katy Evans.

Sidney Halston: Inspiration, Niche, and Writing Ritual
Though Sidney Halston had a law career, her heart was into writing. So when she stopped working in the said sector, Halston put pen to paper. By then she was aged thirty. In her career, Halston used to pen attention-grabbing legal briefs but that was as far as it went. Eventually, Halston’s writing dream bore fruits.

According to Sidney Halston, there is no specific thing that inspires her. She opines that she is inspired by anything and everything ranging from videos to books to music to TV shows to Google search. For instance, Sidney Halston’s husband is a mixed martial artist and he inspired a complete series. Halston, who is susceptible to panic attacks, created a character called Catherine in the 2016 book entitled Pull Me Close based on her anxiety disorder.

Another example; Halston’s earliest romantic suspense book, entitled Kiss Marry Kill, was inspired by a sexy video that she chanced upon on YouTube via Facebook. She was moved by the manner in which the characters in the video kissed and held each others’ hands, prompting her to write a complete book.

Sidney Halston opines admires the romance niche because it is somewhat fantastical, especially wherein the characters try to make up for what their former lovers could not provide satisfactorily; and for escapism purpose, especially where the reader yearns for the elusive happily ever after mentality.

Sidney Halston’s writing ritual involves; one, plonking herself in a large comfortable leather chair and typing away as she used to do when her favorite writing spot was a Starbucks couch-furnished joint; and, two, writing while loud crank music is blasting in the background or midst noisy children. These things set the tone and pace of her writing.

Section on Books
Sidney Halston has penned several series which range from duologies (three of her books are duologies) to a sextet. The earliest book series that Sidney Halston authored is titled Seeing Red. By the way, this is a duology and its title is borrowed from that of the first book contained therein. There are about four editions of the first book in the aforementioned duology.

The first edition was initially published in early 2013, titled Seeing Red. The aforementioned book is shelved under the romance (particularly paranormal romance sub-genre), new adult, mystery, fantasy (especially paranormal sub-genre), contemporary (specifically the contemporary romance sub-genre), fantasy, academic (especially college work), and the fiction genres.

Jillian Stone is the featured central character in Sidney Halston’s 2013 book titled Seeing Red. Meet protagonist Jillian Stone, a twenty-something-year-old clairvoyant woman who is nicknamed Red. Stone, an introvert, is intelligent and independent person. She is presently pursuing a law degree at a Texas institution, Stone has two childhood bosom friends, who are identical twin brothers, called Oliver Jacobs and Alexander Jacobs. The three of them were orphaned in their childhoods and spent their formative years in an abandoned island hard on the heels of their involvement in an air crash; they stayed for over a decade in that island, awaiting a search and rescue mission. The crash claimed the lives of their respective mothers who were then carrying their pregnancy. Stone and the Jacobs were raised by a guardian called Helen.

The turning point in Sidney Halston’s book, Seeing Red, is the death of their adored guardian. As such, they all convene during her burial ceremony after being separated from each other for seven years. Oliver and Alexander Jacobs, Stone’s kindred spirits, start angling for a romantic friendship with Stone; what’s more, Stone’s professor is also eyeing her. Read on the unfolding interesting story as Stone tries to choose one of them over the others, coupled with her psychic experience.

One Response to “Sidney Halston”

    Dear Sidney,

    I just finished The Apology Project and want you to know that I enjoyed it immensely. This is the first book that I have read which you have authored. Amelia/Millie was a delightful, flawed, honest and unique character. Her insights were so often revelations that, while extremely humorous, were also thought provoking for me as well. I thoroughly enjoyed your style of writing and look forward to your next project. Perhaps, not a fair question, but do your former publications provide the insights, humor, honesty and thought provoking moments that The Apology Project presented?

    By the way, I reside in St. Augustine so we are practically neighbors!

    I wish you much success and happiness in your future endeavors. I assume that you don’t miss your career as an attorney at all.
