I have traveled outside the mountains, but never lived apart from them.”
Home & Passions
With deep roots in the valley, Victoria never feels more at home than when she's exploring the the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She is committed to representing East Tennessee and Appalachian culture in her work.
When she isn't writing or running Blue Pen, you'll find her slogging up a steep trail or resting peacefully in her hammock. Many of her best memories take place around a fire, deep in the woods, and her goal is to bring that sense of natural wonder to her writing.
