About Valerie

Author of 8 books, including THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR NEW WRITERS, a how-to book based on my series of writing workshops. My most recent novel, OVERTAKEN, is a literary fairy tale written for adults of all ages--teens too! When I'm not writing I like to draw, paint, collage, and make handbuilt pottery.
