My name is Victoria, but most of my friends and family call me Tori. Feel free to do the same.

Born in the shadow of the black mountains in Wales, I now live by the sea in the south-east of England with my husband, Kelly, a degu named Joshua, a pair of chinchillas named Mollie and Maizie, and a West Highland White Terrier named Lilie.

Having battled with glaucoma since birth, I now find myself completely blind. But I haven’t let that stop me from chasing the dream I've had since I was a young child: the dream of becoming a published author. I've loved to read and write since I learned how, and always wanted to get my work published. Finally, in 2012, I made that dream come true by self-publishing the first of my books as an eBook via Smashwor

Books allow you to explore worlds and possibilities you otherwise couldn't, and I love that being a writer allows me to be a part of making that happen.(less)

If I can't manage to find it in me to work on anything though, I'll take some time out to do something else without thinking about writing for a few days (read, watch movies, etc). By the time I've done that, I'm usually ready to work on at least one of the pieces I have on the go again.(less)

Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.
~Jane Yolen

Imagination is like a muscle. I found out that the more I wrote, the bigger it got.
~Philip José Farmer

Inspiration comes and goes, creativity is the result of practice.

This is a great collection of stories, which makes for an enjoyable companion to the main series. I loved "Two Ghosts For Sister Rachel" and "Million Dollar Baby" especially.

“Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working. Tell them it's research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone.”

Coming thro' the rye,
