About Me

I’m more colourful than this in real life:


My name is Victoria. My friends call me Tory. You can be my friend if you want, although there is an entrance exam. Don’t worry, there’s only one question. I’ll give you the answer. It’s “Here, have some cake.”

It doesn’t matter what the question is.

I always wanted to be a writer when I grew up. Lately it’s occurred to me that the growing up part might never happen so I’ve decided to stop waiting for it. In 2014 I decided to start really trying to “be a writer”, a decision that alternately fills me with joy and existential dread.

I just released The Rose and the Mask, and I’m also pretty pleased with Bloody Zombies.

When I’m not writing, you can generally find me reading, watching TV, playing videogames or, against my better judgement, interacting socially with fellow humans and having life experiences.
