Victoria Helen Stone is the nom de plume for USA Today bestselling author Victoria Dahl. After publishing more than twenty-five novels, she has taken a turn toward the darker side of genre fiction. Born and educated in the Midwest, she finished her first manuscript just after college. In 2016, the American Library Association awarded her the prestigious Reading List Award for outstanding genre fiction. Having escaped the plains of her youth, she now resides with her family in a small town high in the Rocky Mountains, where she enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, and not skiing (too dangerous).

The protagonist is a female sociopath and it was disturbingly easy to write from her POV. ;-) Seriously, her thoughts are very straight-forward and I didn't have to pause to wonder how she would react to situations or describe things. I did have to go back a remove qualifiers like "maybe" or "probably." She's too confident to use those words often.(less)

How to Start a Love Affair with Audiobooks

I was an audiobook failure. Not a failure at writing the books, mind you, but at listening to them. I could never manage to get through more than a chapter or two, and then my interest would fizzle out and I wouldn’t go back. I’d try and fail every time. But I desperately wanted audiobooks in my ear while I was cleaning or driving or walking! So I trained my brain by starting small.

Mellie Dulac, the reluctant hero of W.H. Cameron’s CROSSROAD, is prickly, anti-social, and a bit of a wreck, and I loved every second I spent with her.

“People cause pain. Even good people hurt those they love. We all do it because we can’t help it. Most of us aren’t evil; we’re just stupid and flawed and not careful with others.”
Victoria Helen Stone, Jane Doe

“Frankly, fictional people appeal far more to me than real people do. In fiction, the choices have to make sense. The timeline proceeds rationally. Emotions are explained to me. Characters feel the way they are supposed to feel in response to the actions of others. Nobody stays in a bad situation because of inertia or low self-esteem. That would make for a truly shitty story. But in real life . . . God, in real life people so rarely behave in ways that improve their circumstances.”
Victoria Helen Stone, Jane Doe

“Maybe I should get a cat. The thought invades my head fully formed and utterly obvious. A cat. Another little sociopath to curl up beside me at night and keep me warm.”
Victoria Helen Stone, Jane Doe
