About this author

Victoria Kahler loves reading and writing, vacations, and the ocean. She chose cruise ships as the setting of her first two YA novels, Seven on the Blue and Capturing the Sunset. For her latest novels, Their Friend Scarlet and Luisa Across the Bay, she stayed closer to home and set these novels in her native state of California (so, of course, there are more oceanside scenes!).

All of her books are available on Scribd and Amazon.

In the fall of 2010, Victoria joined the 408 Writing Gang, where she enjoys discussing her own work and the fiction, biographies, and poetry of other writers. These friends, as well as her family, inspire her and encourage her to continue writing stories.

She is currently working on her next novel.

So... I loved Anna and the French Kiss...a lot because j'aime Paris. I started reading Lola and the Boy Next Door really wanting to love it. And guess where it's set? My home sweet home, San Francisco...one of the greatest cities in the world! And whom do I meet there with Lola? Anna and Etienne! Joy! Can this book get any better???



If Etienne could be the love interest of all the books...



No, no...

Victoria and 459 other people liked Wendy Darling's review of Wonder:
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
"Wonder is one of those rare books that makes you want to hug everyone in it so tightly that they’ll have no doubt about how much you love them…and beyond that, it also makes you want to reach out and hug the whole world. It’s an upbeat, humorous,..." Read more of this review »
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
"I knew from other reviews that Wonder would be kind of funny. What I didn't expect was how it will affect me. Kindness was never my virtue, but this book made me rethink that.

I admire August's brave soul. I am and will never be a fan of any insec..." Read more of this review »

Victoria is on page 310 of 316 of Wonder: “You know,” he said, “one of the things you learn when you get old like me is that sometimes, a new situation will come along, and you’ll have no idea what to do. There’s no rule book that tells you how to act in every given situation in life, you know? So what I always say is that it’s always better to err on the side of kindness. That’s the secret. If you don’t know what to do, just be kind."

“Teachers knew every one of the students, their secrets, their grades, their home situations. And all the students knew the teachers. It was like teachers were people who finally were the most popular at school.”
Victoria Kahler, Their Friend Scarlet

“She felt just like that girl in that book with the letter A on her chest. Only her A signified Alone. She was an outcast, cast out by her own choices, an outsider with a pretty face. Like a rose, she may have been beautiful to look at, but almost everyone only knew the thorny side.”
Victoria Kahler, Their Friend Scarlet

“He was like her favorite type of candy, she realized, a bit sour at first but all sweetness in the long run. Admittedly . . . that tartness was part of the allure all along.”
Victoria Kahler, Their Friend Scarlet

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“She thoroughly felt the pitch and roll of the ship as it traveled southerly across the ocean. It was a pleasant feeling, an ancient one that every person who had ever loved the sea had felt and cherished--to be rocked to sleep, as if in a mother's arms or in a cradle.”
Victoria Kahler, Seven on the Blue

“The morning was on fire as the sun rose, seemingly from the ocean depths. The great, glowing orb came to the surface and set the horizon aflame. Many minutes passed, and it floated fully into the sky to light the day and gently warm the sea below.”
Victoria Kahler, Seven on the Blue

“It isn't that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better.”
Francis Drake

“She watched the gap between ship and shore grow to a huge gulf. Perhaps this was a little like dying, the departed no longer visible to the others, yet both still existed, only in different worlds.”
Susan Wiggs, The Charm School
