Sydney Campanella

Hello, my name is Sydney Campanella and I’m 12 years old. I’ve written two books, The Mysterious Birthday Gift, which I wrote when I was 10 and Mystery on the Trail, which I wrote at age 11. This year I’m working a third to add to the series. When I was younger, I used to love to write. I thought then I was destined to become a poet like my mom.  A couple years later, around the age of seven, I thought maybe I could write a novel. So, I sat down at my desk with a pencil and some notebook paper and began to write about a cat named Pocadot and her adventures. Although hand-written, it was over 100 pages. After having my dad edit it, I gave it to my mom for Christmas. Although it was not a book that would be published like my other two and it had tons of plot, spelling and grammatical errors, it was definitely the start of my writing career.
In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and running around with my dog outside tromping through the woods and creeks. Also, I love playing basketball.
My pets inspired me a lot throughout the writing process. In my books I have a dog named Rusty who is a lot like my golden retriever Sunny. Sunny is exuberant, playful and fun-loving, just as Rusty is in the book. My cats, Melia and Cinder, were also inspirations. Normally, when I’m writing Melia will come upstairs, curl up in the chair next to me by my computer and take a nap. 
Now, I’m working on a third book in my series. It will be set at a summer camp. As always Rusty will make an appearance and cause a bit of chaos. I want to thank all the people who have supported me and helped me through this process of becoming a young author.
My books are on if anyone's interested in checking them out. Just search my name and they'll come up.
