About Victoria from a student 


"Victoria's workshop provides the perfect setting of intimacy and direct contact with other serious writers, all of whom have different talents and struggles. The format Victoria has organized is highly professional, with examples of character development, plot, dialog and action, to inspire and enable the ability to actualize our goals of writing and going about getting published. Victoria is a consummate professional, an astute observer and critic, and an engaging, charismatic teacher. I feel incredibly fortunate to have found her and have a new confidence that I will find a niche in the world of Children's literature."   Dianne Warner
