She is the author of the short story collection Our Lady of the Dark Country (Wild Talewort Press 2018), two novels for young readers, The Wild Folk and The Wild Folk Rising (Usborne, 2018 & 2019), and the post-apocalyptic folktale cycle Tatterdemalion (Unbound 2017) with painter Rima Staines.
Her works of nonfiction include The Wonderments of the East Bay (Heyday 2014), and Lost Worlds of the San Francisco Bay Area (Heyday, Spring 2017).
Sylvia divides her time between her pine forest home on Coast Miwok ancestral land on the Point Reyes Peninsula in California, and the Greek island of Crete.
