An active member of Central Pennsylvania Romance Writers, Victoria lives in Central Pennsylvania with her high school sweetheart, four children, an oversized mutt who thinks she’s a lapdog, an overweight cat who tries to make visitors believe he’s never fed, and an ever changing menagerie of critters.
