If someone had told me twenty years ago that I'd be the author of 20 books, I'd have fallen off my chair. I’m still amazed to see my novels on Goodreads, Amazon, and occasionally the shelves at Walmart.

More than anything, I delight in telling stories that tackle tough issues with faith and compassion. One my most challenging books, Together With You, won the RWA FHL Readers Choice Award for Best Contemporary Romance. I was equally thrilled when The Two of Us made it to the shelves in Target as part of the "Target Recommends" program.

Before writing contemporaries, I wrote westerns for Harlequin Historical and Love Inspired Historical. The LIHs are clean reads. The Harlequin Historicals (no brown banner like the LIHs) were written for the m

I'm working on Book #3 for Bethany House right now. Working title is Back To You, but it'll probably change to something else with a "You" at the end.

I've also written a bunch of westerns for Love Inspired Historical, including a novella. But I'm most at home in modern times with longer books. (less)

2018 Reading Challenge

My goal is to read at least a book a week and to mix up genres. Always open to suggestions! I'll read pretty much anything, but I'm not big on paranormal, steamy romance, and horror.

Quotes by Victoria Bylin  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“we don't always understand what happens to us or why, but if we could see through the lens of eternity, we'd weep with joy.”
Victoria Bylin, Until I Found You
tags: faith

“I'll love you forever. Nothing can change how I feel about you. Nothing. I'd take a bullet for you, walk on hot coals. I'll watch chick flicks and hold your purse at the mall. When babies come I'll rub your feet, and when we are old and gray, I'll love you even more than I do now. But I can't stand here and say 'Do whatever makes you happy,' because happy is temporary. I want us to have more, Kate. I want us to have joy.”
Victoria Bylin, Until I Found You

“We're imperfect human beings. We're destined to fail. The only love that never fails is God's love. His love for His children---us--is boundless, battle-tested, and bold. It's trustworthy, tried and true.”
Victoria Bylin, The Two of Us
