What is YOUR favorite Fourth of July memory?

on June 23, 2020

Taking Chances

on November 18, 2019

From an early age, I’ve always loved to write. I’d scribble stories when I was little kid, writing on anything that I could get my hands on. In high school, I wrote my first novel. I hand wrote on 500 pages of notebook paper (front and back!) because in my greenness, 500 pages seemed like… Read More

How a book is born, or where I got my idea for my very first Christmas romance

on October 17, 2019

People often want to know where writers get their ideas, and in interviews authors reveal how they people-watch or listen in on conversations and then what if- questions start bubbling in their brains. For me, it often starts with a single scene I imagine clearly. Out of the blue really. The image of a lady… Read More

Victoria James

I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you’ve ever seen my drawings you’ll know how horrible they must have been. I still draw stick figures). Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again. In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business. After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction. I’m a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for my 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 I’m quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat. I’d love to hear from you! Always feel free to connect with me via email, Twitter, or Facebook.

I'm a mom and wife first and many things after. I'm a best friend and a regular friend. A daughter, sister, auntie, a teacher, and maybe even... a writer. I am a book lover, a shopper, a pajama-wearer, movie-watcher, worrier, over-thinker, and a wanna-be-good-Samaritan. I'm a Gemini, a nervous talker, and an emotional writer.

A sense of humor was a must when I taught elementary grades and Head Start, and I've always loved books and movies that make me laugh. My Fish Out of Water series from Entangled Publishing deals with heroines thrust outside their comfort zones. Their first meetings with their heroes tend to be quirky. An English Lit major at the University of Washington, I now read mostly genre novels. Contemporary and historical romances and mysteries are my favorites. I love camping--out in the wilds and close to nature--with all the comforts of our motor home. Sitting by a clear mountain stream with a good book to read is my idea of heaven.
