Update

Welcome!
This update page will give you the very latest on my writing, and any new books that might be on the way. You're also welcome to visit my website: www.victorialindstrom.com

What kind of books do I write?
I enjoy writing for middle grade readers, but I would never rule out the possibility of writing for young adults, and even adults in the future. I enjoy writing light fantasy, time travel, & including a bit of the natural world in my stories. I have also collaborated with my artist/husband, Michael Lindstrom, to create two illustrated short stories - Lindstrom Wintertime Tales. (See below.)

What kind of books do I enjoy reading?
I am a bibliophile. I enjoy reading picture books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, and adult novels. Historical fiction novels and biographies also interest me, as well as poetry.

Have I always wanted to write?
Yes, but not as a vocation until 2007. I worked for many years as a dental hygienist, until I sustained a career-ending wrist injury. I had already had two poems published during my "dentistry days" and so I decided to go back to college for a few creative writing courses. To be honest, I wish I had pursued this path long ago.

What books have I written? What am I currently working on?
My debut children's book was The Scandinavian Santa, with illustrations by Michael Lindstrom. It released in Sept. 2014 from Deeds Publishing. The Tale of Willaby Creek - a middle grade novel - released in June 2015 from Thistleberry Books. Our second Wintertime Tale - Journey to Snowdonia - will release in September 2017. My work in progress is The Whim of Winter - another illustrated short story. I'm also revising a middle grade fantasy/ historical fiction novel for a proposed series - it's entitled: Livvi Biddle and the Secret at Stonehenge.

What is a normal day like for me?
I usually do my household chores, errands, and volunteer work in the morning. After that, I begin social networking and blogging. Classical music is constantly playing in our home - I find it inspiring. I leave the afternoon to write - my friends and family have been told not to contact me between the hours of one and four. After dinner I usually read, while my husband paints with oils. We watch very little television, and when we do it's usually PBS!

What are my hobbies? Besides reading, I enjoy visiting art galleries with my husband, watching DVD movies, but most of all, being out in nature! Below is a photo of me in the woods near our home.
