Through teaching young children for nearly eleven years, Victoria DeAngelis developed a great appreciation for children's literature. That appreciation, coupled with her love of writing (a love she acquired as a child herself), sparked inside of her the desire to become a children's book author!
Middle-grade, realistic fiction is Victoria's passion! She strives to create interesting/mysterious/quirky characters that her readers would love to have as their best friends or as part of their own family. More importantly, she aims to transport her readers into new worlds, while helping them to understand the world around them.
