Syrie James is an author and screenwriter. Her name is pronounced "Sear-ee" (rhymes with Dearie.) Her unusual first name was inspired by a character in a radio show her mother listened to as a little girl. Her mother loved the sound of the name and promised herself that when she grew up, if she had a daughter, she'd named her Syrie. Having no idea how to spell it, she simply made it up.
When she's not reading, researching, writing, or updating her website, Syrie's preferred activity is to spend time with her husband and family. Syrie married her college sweetheart, Bill James, and she considers their sons Ryan and Jeff to be her finest achievements. Syrie and Bill were thrilled to recently welcome two wonderful daughters to their family, Ryan's wife Yvonne, and Jeff's wife Yakun!
