V.West was born in Virginia, USA. She grew up in rural West Virginia where highlights of her childhood included collecting fossil rocks, skipping rocks in the creek (not fossil rocks), eating as much penny candy as possible before dinner, hosting talent shows with her friends, roller skating in the church parking lot, playing hide-and-seek in the summer until after midnight, and not crossing the street (the only paved one in her town) without asking her parents for permission first. She went to school in the northeast where she dropped her southern drawl, but it comes back each time she crosses the Mason-Dixon line. She has held a variety of jobs ranging from forklift driving, to life model posing, to bar tending, to sword polishing, to buttonhole making, to paralegaling, to game designing, to financial reporting, to teaching, to translating, to…well, she’s never been one to pass up the opportunity to try something new on her career/life path. Her favorite thing to do is to share stories, which she’s trying her hand at now with her writings. In her adult life she has lived in WV, NYC, LA (in the states) and also in the Middle East, Europe, and Asia, and but her heart always travels home to the Blue Ridge Mountains where her many friends, family, and precious memories reside. In the future, V.West dreams of one day editing her bio down to a crisp and clever one liner, but hasn't been able to craft that yet. Maybe some day… V.West would like to sincerely thank you for reading her story and hopes that you enjoyed it. She hopes to be able to share many more with you soon. Take care & God bless.
