About Me

Victoria Lindstrom
Occupation: Author.
Location: Pacific Northwest, U.S.A.

Hiking in the woods, gardening, bicycling, and, of course, reading. Volunteering occasionally at our local community library and being an active member of the SCBWI keep me busy as well. Spending time with my husband and our three grown sons is my favorite thing to do.

Favorite Children's Books
The Wind in the Willows, Winnie the Pooh, Heidi, The Velveteen Rabbit, A Wrinkle in Time, The Story of Ferdinand,  the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories, the Boxcar Children series, The Chronicles of Narnia, Matilda, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh.

Seeking agent.

I'm presently writing a standalone MG novel inspired by my 2014 trip to France, The Rabbit of Rouen. A third Lindstrom Wintertime Tale - The Winter Wayfarer - has been written, but needs editing, and for the illustrations to be completed. I've also outlined Book II in the Livvi Biddle Series.
