Meet the Author

Victoria began writing her debut novel on September 1, 2010. “Like my heroine, Charity Faith, I always felt as though I had a Katrina story inside of me, but I wasn’t sure that I had the strength to commit it to paper. Just days after the fifth anniversary of Katrina, I sat down at my desk and all of my thoughts and emotions began to pour out. I drew upon my personal experiences and recollections to craft an honest representation of the storm’s impact on the peoples and places of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”

Having survived Katrina, Victoria understood the challenges of writing about the disaster. Rather than overwhelm her readers, she chose to focus on a close-knit group of people and the places that were important to them. This method enables readers to establish a connection with the place and experience the tragedy on a personal level.

Having survived Hurricane Katrina myself along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I find Victoria's interpretation of events down here very realistic. The experiences were very different than what happened in New Orleans and Victoria captures this event in a way that the reader can feel like they are experiencing it first hand! Victoria's ability to write a complicated love story over a horrific event is astonishing. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested on the impacts of Hurricane Katrina to a region rich in history and culture! Good job Victoria!
