A self-admitted book addict, Valerie was the kid with the flashlight under her pillow. A life of travel with exposure to many different cultures led to a pervasive interest in people, with degrees & teaching credentials in Cultural Anthropology & English.

Writing and Teaching became twin passions, and she feels lucky to pursue both. An ocean-loving Pisces, she hugs the coast in both the Pacific Northwest and Southern California.

With the support and distraction of her husband, John, their 6 children, a growing tribe of grandchildren, and a very supportive Girls' Night group, she is hard at work on Book 4, Logan's next adventure!

I visualize that character, put them in the scene, then see what they do.

I think we get writers block when we worry too much about being perfect - getting it just right the first time. You may write scenes you'll never use in the finished product, but that's OK - it gets you off the block.

As a species, we are hilarious! I love taking someone I see at the airport or while on jury duty, then putting them together - turning them into a barista, security guard, or love interest. I'm attracted to people on the fringes of society and eccentrics who go their own way, totally unconcerned with what others think of them. (less)

EVER WONDER HOW YOUR WRITING COMPARES to famous authors? Whether you are a working author, or someone who would like to be, who wouldn’t want to know how they measured up to Stephen King, Maya Angelou, Barbara Kingsolver, Arthur Conan Doyle, Norman Mailer, or W. Somerset Maughan?


While you may not be able to compare quality of content, you can compare quantity, at least as measured in daily word...
