Her paranormal romances come with uniquely fresh perspectives on "imaginary" creatures, characters, and themes. She adds a dash of scifi, a flourish of fantasy, enough humor to make you laugh out loud, and enough steam to make you squirm in your chair. Her heroines are independent femmes with flaws and minds of their own whether they are aliens, witches, demonologists, psychics, past life therapists. Her heroes are hot and hunky, but they also have brains, character, and good manners. **Usually.
Victoria lives in The Woodlands, Texas with her husband and a very smart, mostly black German Shepherd dog.

What is your favorite part of VAMPIRE HUNTER, Rammel Hawking?
I think my favorite part of this book is the narrative by Ram’s belated former partner, excerpt included herein.
If you were stranded on a desert island which of your characters do you want by your side?
Rammel Hawking. He’s not only resourceful, but he has the reputation among friends of taking the party with him wherever he goes. Needless to say, he’s also the last word on sexy.
What is your favorite book that you wrote?
Black Swan #3, A Summoner’s Tale. I’ve called this book my masterpiece for several reasons. First, it was extremely complex and written on a timeline with a lot of moving parts that had to come together in a symphony of synchronicity. Second, I was able to use some of the graduate level history I’d studied. Third, it was so emotional there were a couple of times during the writing when I was crying so hard I couldn’t see the monitor screen.
What is your typical day like?
Walk the dog. Discuss business with my assistant, Sarah. Write, edit, or plan. Run errands. Dinner and TV with spouse.
What do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
I was a Kindle early adopter. Had one long before Oprah ever heard of it. I used to take a backpack on vacation with lots of bulky, heavy books. Now I take a device that weighs less than a pound, is back lit, and holds hundreds of books.
