Victoria Smith wrote her first romance at the age of nine and hid the story from her brothers because she didn’t want to be teased. Her mother recently found and gave her the folded notebook paper and, if you’re lucky, one day she’ll reveal the hero in that story. Now, she writes urban fantasy, dark paranormal, romantic suspense and women’s fiction – always with a happy, or at least satisfying, ending. An active member of Romance Writers of America, Victoria lives in Central Pennsylvania with her high school sweetheart and a rapidly expanding family as the children meet their soul mates.
