Shyla Colt is a sassy USA Today bestselling author with a rebellious streak that leads her to genre hop. Regardless of the genre you'll find these three things in her stories: strong females, pop culture, and alternate routes to happy ever after.


Listening to her Romani soul, she pens from the heart, allowing the dynamic characters, eccentric interests, and travels as a former flight attendant to take her down untraveled roads. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, this mid-west girl is proud of her roots.



 As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household.She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company.

I’m striving to be a better me inside and out in 2017. That means getting rid of clutter. It’s something I make a point of doing monthly in my home. As a rule, something has to go out before something new comes in. It keeps the place tidy, and me from becoming complete...

In my family, we have a saying, everyone gets a turn. I’ve always been big on teaching my girls it’s not always about you because I don’t think allowing them to believe that would be helping them grow into the best people they can be, and it’s very unrealistic. We all...
