Author has written 11 stories for Historical, Young Adult, Romance, Humor, and Fantasy.

Silvestria has recently graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in classics. Despite this, she is not yet married to an arrogant-yet-attractive British aristocrat and living in his ancestral pile in the countryside, passing her days in elegant retirement writing genteel parlour novels, exploring the estate on horseback (sidesaddle of course) and practising the harp. If anybody can point her in the right direction for turning fantasy into reality she would be eternally grateful.

STORIES WRITTEN
-Harry Potter and (more recently) Downton Abbey fanfiction over at fanfiction.net
-I've started working on my first Historical Romance- 'A Lady of Independence' set in early 1800s London. WIP.
-Janetta- my best work. A parody inspired by Jane Austen's Juvenilia. COMPLETED.
-The Mancunians. A parody of a soap opera set in my home town.
-One Fine Day on the Cherwell. A fantasy romantic comedy (one shot COMPLETED) set in Oxford.
-Allegro Ma Non Troppo. An Edwardian comedy/romance that might appeal to music and Gilbert and Sullivan fans.
