Meet the Author

Victoria was destined for a writing career when a teacher circled her detailed description of a sword and wrote "Great!". Her foray into writing for herself began with poetry written as a teenager. This gateway drug led to short stories, which ultimately paved the way for novels. Her first novel, an f/f romance called Daughters of Gaia, was finished in 2006. She submitted it to small-press publishers, who, despite some encouraging words, did not choose to publish it.Meanwhile, she tried writing something more mainstream, and wrote a sci-fi novel called Replacements, which she submitted to agents in the hopes of starting a traditional writing career. Frustrated with sometimes brusque form rejections while good manuscripts built up on her hard drive, Victoria decided to begin self-publishing her collection of m/m and f/f novels in 2012, while still continuing to listen to her demanding muse and keep writing.Victoria was born in the United Kingdom but emigrated to the United States at age 21. She's bisexual, happily married and still shouts in a British accent.

I thought this short story was good, however there were a few mistyped words which is the main reason I gave it a 3 star rating. I also would have liked it more if it were a longer story. Another reason for the 3 star rating has to do with almost unrealistic situations. I feel that Alice using her depression and nightmares as a comparison to Lucy 's extensive burn scars was arrogant. Basically the end just wasn't written as well as it could have been. But in all I liked it quite a lot. I'd definitley read more of your work.

The story is short, but it is so beautiful that you can over look it. I look forward to other stories like these by this author.

How can u wrigh that some one loves some one else and then just leave them to die. You could have at least had her run to a fireman and told them where she was so they could help her. Not go home and take a shower. I read a lot at least 4 books a week but this is one of the worst ever. Even her guit at the end was unbaelieveable.

I was not impressed with this book. It was not written very well, and was kind of too far fetched. The ending was sweet.

Looks confused. "But– I'm fine now." He pauses. "I just... It happens whenever I fight. If I pull a tail, my tail hurts. I imagine how I am hurting the other cat. I don't like to fight."
