Still Harbor # 1
Teacher Kate Abbott's fresh start in Still Harbor was the beginning of the life that she and her two best friends always imagined for themselves. Still, being a working single parent of a special needs daughter hasn't exactly improved Kate's love life. But Kate's preference for nachos over men quickly disappears when she meets the oh-so-sexy Matt Lane.
I remember reading a quote by a famous author and how she didn't believe in waiting for one's muse to show up. I agree with this! When you're writing for a publisher, you have deadlines and a schedule. There are some days that I find writing very difficult. There are some days that it's so easy, I don't want to stop. But either way, the writing needs to get done.
The days that the words come fastest are when I'm on a tight deadline ;-)...but always when I'm really into the story. The characters become very familiar to me, almost like old friends. I love topics surrounding families, redemption, healing, and home.
In my newest book, Falling for the P.I., I'm able to capture all my favourites into one book. It's an emotional read that tests the meaning of family and the power of healing.
Victoria always knew she wanted to be a writer and in grade five, she penned her first story, bound it (with staples and a cardboard cover) and did all the illustrations herself. Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.
In high school she fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, Victoria pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened her own business. After her first child, Victoria knew it was time to fulfill her dream of writing romantic fiction.
Victoria is a hopeless romantic who is living her dream, penning happily-ever-after's for her characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but she's quite content living in suburbia with her husband, their two young children, and very bad cat.
